Nothing sparks conversation quite like great food and drink — both of which are best enjoyed with good friends. Palm Desert Food & Wine brings it all together amid an unrivaled backdrop of sunshine, swaying palms, and mountain views at The Gardens on El Paseo in Palm Desert.
The 12th annual culinary festival will center around two days of Grand Tastings, featuring samples from a diverse cast of local restaurants alongside top regional, national, and international vintners, brewmasters, and distilleries. Celebrity chefs offer intimate cooking demos at the Grand Tastings and also host multicourse meals, including the annual James Beard Gourmet Four-Course Luncheon, and educational off-site events.
A portion of proceeds benefits the James Beard Foundation and the Coachella Valley’s Find Food Bank.
