Acclaimed Guest Chefs join Local Chefs Cooking Side-by-Side in Memphis Restaurants



MEMPHIS, TN, August, 2018​ -- Memphis Food & Wine Festival announces additional details for a new course of unique dinners kicking off this fall in different Memphis restaurants. These four Celebrity Chefs’ Dinners will offer attendees a one of a kind dining experience, pairing four renowned chefs from around the country with a team of celebrated local chefs for a culinary collaboration not to be missed. Each dinner will offer a featured winery specially selected by Southern Glazer’s to complement the menu.
