Tasting Texas

A Culinary Festival with a Purpose

Realizing a shared vision with the James Beard Foundation to make good food for good™, and spotlight women and minority communities, a partnership between the Foundation, Visit San Antonio, and Culinaria was a natural progression. Proceeds from Tasting Texas will benefit the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship programs, which in turn, provide opportunities for minority culinary talent to develop their skills and experience. Further, by providing high-level exposure to chefs from Texas, the city of San Antonio, and others across the country, Tasting Texas aims to help the restaurant industry, locally and nationally, grow from the devastating financial effects of the pandemic.

Come for the Tasting Texas Wine + Food Festival, stay for the authentic experience of a welcoming city rich in diverse cultures and heritage with over 300 years of history. Book your trip today and see what we mean.
