Video: Grill talk with Tim Love

Matthew Odam

When you think “food and wine festival,” your mind may conjur images of seersucker, cheese nibbles and pinkie-out wine sipping. Fort Worth chef Tim Love destroys those notions. The Austin Food & Wine Festival partner hosts an annual grilling demo, an idea fest partner Charlie Jones says came from having attended others fests that lacked a hands-on element, and it is a party. Love calls the 300-person event the larget grilling demo in the world. It’s probably also the sauciest and most colorful, with the chef encouraging imbibing and leading by example.

The Statesman’s Reshma Kirpalani caught up with the chef to talk about the demo and the fest. See the video above.
