IF WE DIDN’T LOVE IT,
“When we invite loved ones over for dinner we are offering more than nutrition. The good host offers mental substance too, feeding the soul as much as the stomach.”
The Steamboat Food & Wine Festival is a 4 day-long culinary experience featuring collaborations with celebrated chefs, wine experts, and other culinary specialists from across the country paired with savory events to enchant the mind and palate.
Our mission is to be immersed in the evolving space of food and wine by engaging curiosity, by going above and beyond to support food sustainability and our chefs. We host an inspiring experience that creates thoughtful conversations and connections not just during our event, but throughout the year.
We introduce new chefs to foodies and foodies to topics that impact the culinary world today. These topics include: sustainability, sourcing of ingredients that are good for the soul, body and planet, new techniques, new dishes, and unique flavors.
We provide compensation, food costs, accommodations, and travel expenses for our chefs and other talent, as we are indebted to our visiting talent for their time, expertise, and passion.
SUPPORTING OUR PARTNERS
