Culinaria is San Antonio’s foodie event of the year. The sole purpose of this non profit local organization is to promote San Antonio as a premiere food and wine destination.
“Culinaria celebrates the best of food and that means upscale affairs featuring sumptuous gourmet creations, elegant wine dinners, extravagant tastings with many of the best Chefs, global and local wineries, and roadside food trucks, too.
Culinaria gets underway with two evenings of winemaker dinners at various locations throughout San Antonio. The Food Truck phenomenon rolls back into the Alon Market for an encore, gastronomic experience on Thursday, May 16. Guests will enjoy Latin, Asian and New American cuisine – and yes, tacos, too – served from rolling roadside kitchens. The $10 entry fee includes beer, wine and water, so bring plenty of cash to purchase food direct from each vendor.
The seating-limited Becker Luncheon at the Becker Vineyards in Stonewall on May 17, features well-traveled San Antonio and Hill Country chefs creating a unique menu inspired by visiting winemakers.
But Culinaria has never been an event just for so-called foodies. The passion of the people who created this world-class experience more than a decade ago, when it was known as the San Antonio New World Wine & Food Festival, was to showcase the Alamo City’s culinary artistry through an array of events designed to draw both the most enlightened palates and casual diners.
It’s in this spirit that Culinaria has continued to expand, introducing new events during Festival Week that inspire the most renowned chefs while attracting the masses. Burgers, BBQ and Beer, May 19 at The Pearl promises a lazy Sunday afternoon of imaginative takes on the classic backyard fare.”
There’s an event for everyone and every flavor pallet!
Culinaria kicks off this week with the wine dinners and finishes on Sunday with the Grand Tasting. I have my tickets to the top events.
I’ll see you there!
