More than 20 chefs will be participating in the upcoming Chefs for Farmers even the first time it is being held in Houston.
It’s a farm to table feast like no other. The long-running annual food and wine event known as Chefs for Farmers, established in Dallas in 2010, is making its way to Houston. For the very first time. Houston’s very first Chefs For Farmers extravaganza is set for Sunday, October 2 from 1 to 5 pm.
This unique afternoon-long fair pairs notable chefs in the city with the regional farmers they rely on for their daily larder all to create one-of-a-kind dishes.
More than 20 chefs along with several wineries, distilleries, and breweries will be on hand at the soon-to-be-unveiled Autry Park mixed-use development, inviting interested foodies to eat and drink their way through some special offerings. In addition, to celebrate their inaugural year in Houston the powers that be at Chefs for Farmers have partnered with the Houston Food Bank to give back to a helping community that has given so much.
Chefs For Farmers VIP tickets run $150 and allow holders to celebrate an extra hour early, with the opportunity to get up close with the participating chefs, winemakers and farmers. General admission tickets are priced at $115.
