The Food Book Fair takes over a spring weekend, April 24-27th, at The Wythe Hotel with all things food and literary. Last year’s Food Book Fair was an acclaimed success; highlights included Foodieodicals, which will return this year, and The Resource Fair + Pitch Competition.
Bringing together more than 20 events, 200 books, and over 60 visionaries, you can count on this year’s fair to build on years’ past with events like The Brew Pub, The Food Book Slam & The Table of Contents: To Kill a Mockingbird Dinner. And although we’re biased, we expect that Food + Social Entrepreneurship, a discussion with our own president & co-founder Steve Hindy, will be pretty top notch as well. Check out the list of events we’ll be part of below. And prepare for your mind and belly to be well sated by fair’s end.
