Palm Desert Food & Wine
Acclaimed chef and French cooking guru Julia Childs once said: “People who love to eat are always the best people.” The team behind the eighth annual Palm Desert Food & Wine couldn’t agree more. Organized by Palm Springs Life, the three-day event presents some of “the best people” in the food industry — chefs, vintners, and craft beer brewers — from across the country and welcomes all who share a love for good food and fine wine to the beautiful tree-lined El Paseo shopping district in Palm Desert, California. A James Beard Gourmet Four-Course Luncheon prepared by celebrity chefs kicks off the weekend, followed by two days of grand tastings, where you can taste exquisite bites from local and regional restaurants, sip more than 60 premium wines, and savor some of the country’s most unique beers and ciders on tap (whether you’re into IPAs or chardonnays, there will be endless options to explore). Vintners and chefs will even be on hand to discuss their culinary offerings.
