    Relais & Chateaux GourmetFest
    The elegant and acclaimed Relais & Châteaux food & wine celebration returns for its sixth flavorful year from March 14 through 17, 2019.

    SUMPTUOUS SUPPING? It can be a rarer treat, something truly special, and to admire the chef at the helm of your meal, or to know that what's on your plate was fully considered in a way that dishes frequently aren't, can be life-gladdening. And such delicious to-dos do gladden the worlds of gourmands, and those foodies seeking to expand their eats-oriented horizons while enjoying one of the Golden State's prettiest hamlets. The hamlet we're about to mention, Carmel-by-the-Sea, is known for its great eating, but when the Relais & Châteaux GourmetFest comes to town, for four fabulous, dine-around, sip-well days, then it is truly a town at the center of the cuisine-amazing map. Those days in 2019 are...

    MARCH 14 THROUGH 17, and a top tier of top toques'll be in for the festival, as well as acclaimed oeno pros aplenty, not to mention the top-notch teams intent on making this marvelous meet-up of fancy foodiedom super-special. The "... journey of experiential dining events" will include a Saturday Cooking Demonstration from Walter Manzke, the chef and owner of Republique, as well as a brand-new Bluegrass and BBQ festivity at The Wine House. The schedule is as brimful as a plate full of artfully sautéed vegetables or a bowl full of macarons, so peruse all before setting out for Carmel. But how to choose among the "... intimate winemaker talks and tastings, cooking demonstrations, and a chanterelle forage through the rugged Big Sur coast's forested granite gorges"? Oh, those tempting decisions.
