Ashland Food and Wine Classic Preview

Halloween has passed and it’s time for the next big thing on our calendar – Ashland, Oregon’s 4th Annual Food and Wine Classic, held November 5th – 7th. We’re taking part in this weekend long event, which brings together Southern Oregon’s best beer, food and wine vendors to offer samples, educational workshops and the Top Chef Showdown.

To start the weekend off, previous years’ Top Chefs, Franco Console and Neil Clooney, will be preparing a three-course dinner at the Ashland Armory on Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, the 2010 Top Chef Competition and Showdown take place at the Armory from 12-5, with lots of local food and beverages to enjoy while watching the excitement. Standing Stone Brewing Co. will be there pouring tastes of beer and selling pints from our brewery. There will also be a People’s Choice dessert competition between several local restaurants, and spectators are welcome to bid on the sweet dishes afterwards.

Local artisan food and beverage providers sampling at the Armory include:

  • Apple Cellar Bakery
  • Branson’s Chocolates
  • Caldera Brewing Co.
  • Cary’s of Oregon
  • Dagoba Organic Chocolate
  • EdenVale Winery
  • Enchanted Florist

Throughout the weekend, there will be several workshops to indulge your culinary curiosity and creativity. Don’t miss the homebrewing workshop, held Saturday and Sunday 10-11:30 AM, led by expert brewer, Bob of Grains, Beans and Things. There’s also the ever-popular wine tasting class, and one holiday table art promises to help the crafty entertainer get a jump on holiday decorating.

You can purchase tickets from the Ashland Chamber of Commerce by following this link, or at the door.

We recommend buying your tickets in advance, since some events sell out.
