Since my favorite things in life involve food, it’s no surprise that my favorite month in San Antonio, TX is May. Not only was my daughter born in this month, but Culinaria also conducts its annual festival of culinary events! This year Culinaria will run from Wednesday, May 14 through Sunday, May 18, 2014. During this time there will be TWELVE amazing chances to understand why San Antonio is a wine and food destination! Not only does the not-for-profit organization pronounced “COO-linaria” showcase our local chefs that make San Antonio a city on the rise where food is concerned, Culinaria also helps support the local community by providing culinary scholarships and aid to local chefs enduring personal hardships (through their “Chefs 4 Chefs” program.)
Culinaria’s fabulous weeklong festival of food isn’t just for 21+. I bring my daughter to the Food Truck event where we sample food from tons of different local food trucks, wines and beers from both local and out of state purveyors (a lot of time the family owners pouring you a glass at the booth), play games in the field, and cool off with free ice cream being passed out by HEB. Another family friend event that she personally requests is the Burgers, BBQ, and Beer at the Pearl where we enjoy going from restaurant booth to restaurant booth, sampling the over the top dishes, comparing notes, and then sitting at a table to enjoy our food. I won’t spoil the surprise for a future post but just like a good family meal, Culinaria brings people together over great food, great chefs, and great times.
These events will sell out. They will be more expensive at the door.
