Atlanta Food and Wine Festival: Southern Food Celebration

By: Mark Levine

The first annual Atlanta Food and Wine Festival has now wrapped, and the inaugural weekend for food and wine lovers was delicious and fun down to the last slice...

61 Culinary All Stars from 13 states descended on Atlanta over the weekend to celebrate authentic, Southern food and drink from every decadent, tantalizing angle.

Unique Eats power-contributor siblings, Ted and Matt Lee, took time away from eating to share Southern tips and tricks at their cooking demo before serving up a major Southern Supper at Miller Union with Exec Chef, Steven Satterfield (formerly at Watershed).

Fan-fave Cheftestant and Executive Chef of the Woodfire Grill, Kevin Gillespie, curated a deep porcine dive in his Whole Pig Tent.

Kevin led the charge with eight chefs to serve up creative and delicious cuts of the pig from snout to trotter.  If the pig's feet pancakes ( pictured below) didn't speak to you, there was plenty of pork belly for all.

Otherwise, it was an unforgettable weekend of Southern Decadence:

This little Airstream Land Yacht HAS to be on the next season of our new series,  Eat St.

Sad to see the Airstream roll but we can't wait for the 2nd Annual ATL Food & Wine Fest next year:
