One of the city’s best one-day food events returns Sunday as the Austin Food & Wine Alliance celebrates the beauty of the pig at its annual Wine & Swine event.
The afternoon at Camp Mabry will feature 29 chefs preparing dishes from a whole hog, with flavor profiles and techniques representative of Asia, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East/Africa, and North America.
The menu includes Memphis-Style pulled pork with pecan miso remoulade from Taylor Hall of Apis, flautas ahogadas de carnitas from Gabe Erales of Comedor, Austin Eastciders-glazed ribs with sage and apple sausage from Andrew Risner of Franklin Barbecue, Texas-style pork minestrone with preserved chilis, masa pasta and field peas from Damein Brockway of Jester King Kitchen, roasted pork bánh mì from Tebi and Trinh Nguyen of Le Bleu, mushroom shawarma with hummus from Berty Richter of TLV, pan con chicharrón from Maribel Rivero of Yuyo and much more. Balancing out the equation will be plenty of wine.
Tickets for the event cost $90, and there are also $150 VIP tickets available, which include early entry, special tastings and gift from Yeti. Tickets can be purchased at austinfoodwinealliance.org.
The event is a fundraiser for the AFWA’s grant program that started in 2012, and has awarded $252,500 in grants to chefs, farmers, artisan producers, and culinary nonprofits for projects focused on culinary innovation and community giveback. The Alliance will award another $70,000 in grant funding next month, which will bring the total amount of the organization’s donation to the community to $312,500.
