Eat Drink Local 2017

Join us in 2017 on a journey with local connoisseurs to deepen your culinary knowledge through five exclusive hands-on workshops. As our local food economy has grown stronger and more connected than ever, we realize the value in getting back to the basics. Over the past nine years, Eat Drink Local Week has served to encourage support for farm-to-table restaurants and home cooking with local, seasonal ingredients. In our 10th year of publishing, we can’t wait to celebrate this new twist on our tried and true tradition. Bread, coffee, cheese, wine and beer! All such great reasons to #eatdrinklocal.

Membership includes admission to each of the five workshops as well as a year long subscription to the magazine and an Edible Austin market tote.

*June coffee classes seat 6 members and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. When you purchase your ticket please be sure to select your preferred weekend date in June. 


Presented with support from Cannon Belle Sign Wood web
