Grand tasting

Culinaria, San Antonio’s foodie event of the year, likes to finish off the week of events in style. The Grand Tasting.


Held at the Grotto at the Henry B. Gonzales, this food lovers event, which features a VIP room, is the type where heels and ties are the typical attire of the night.

The free flowing wine and samplings of some of the most delicious bites you’ll taste draw the crowds in to this sold out night.

Some of San Antonio’s top note worthy chefs including Chef Jason Dady & Chef John Russ, were showing off their culinary skills with enticing and innovative cuisine.

My favorites of the night were Chef Dady’s brain child of Mexican street corn and a salmon mousse in a green tea cone from Kirby’s.




Numerous restaurants displayed their best and I kept going back for 2nd’s of my favorites, which left me too full to sample everything offered! I broke my first rule of Culinaria, wear something loose so you can eat!




Besides the food, the events of the night included a silent auction, live band, and photo booth picture fun. Arcade even brought along the famous Zoltar to tell fortunes. I hear he’s never wrong!
