Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival tickets on sale, finale returns to The Gardens Mall 


Food-fest lovers, Christmas has arrived in August: Tickets for this year’s Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival went on sale Thursday morning, says festival organizer David Sabin.

And the fest website has posted a slew of discounts, offering packages with savings of 10 to 25 percent off ticket prices.

The festival runs from Dec. 14 through 17, packing 13 events – from walk-around tastings to sit-down, multi-course meals – into the four days. Individual events are priced from $85 to $185 per person.

New events this year include an Italian-themed dinner called “Gravy,” the Eau Resort’s “Brunch in Paradise,” and a Saturday night, glow-in-the-dark dinner with Daniel Boulud. 

New faces include acclaimed Boston chef Matthew Jennings, Los Angeles star chef (and Harrison Ford’s son) Ben Ford of Ford’s Filling Station, New York chef Harold Moore (Commerce, Harold’s Meat + Three), as well as James Beard Award-winning chefs Donald Link (of Cochon and Peche in New Orleans), Tony Mantuano (Spiaggia, Chicago), and Timothy Hollingsworth (Otium in LA, formerly chef de cuisine at The French Laundry). 

Among the returning favorite chefs: Robert Irvine, Jeff Mauro, Marc Murphy, Michelle Bernstein, Timon Balloo, Mike Lata, Stephen Stryjewski, Virginia Willis, Brad Kilgore, Dean James Max, Jonathon Sawyer, Beau MacMillan, Ken Oringer, Elizabeth Falkner and Daniel Serfer. 

The fest kicks off that Thursday with a foursome of chef-driven dinners (two in Palm Beach, two in West Palm) and wraps that Sunday night with its 11th Annual Grand Tasting at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens.
