Ocala Culinary Festival
April 4 to 7, 2019
The Ocala Culinary Festival features five carefully curated events. Thursday’s Food for the Soul is a dinner event featuring Houston-based chef Roshni Gurnan, along with beverage pairings from Ocala official mixologists. Friday night brings Spirits & Smoke, which is all about firewater and live-fire cooking. Sponsored by the Local Palate, it brings together some of the South’s top pitmasters for a barbecue bash. High Design starts your Saturday morning with a fashion show and bubbles brunch, and the evening brings the Feast at the Farm dinner. Sunday is reserved for the flagship event, the Grand Tasting; this year, festival chefs will pay homage to the legacy of the late Anthony Bourdain, creating dishes inspired by his travels.
