SERVED TWO WAYS THE GRAZER AND GOURMAND'S GUIDE TO THE AUSTIN FOOD + WINE FESTIVAL. BY TOM THORNTON After the rainout of the 2016 Austin Food + Wine Festival, C3 Presents brings back a highlight of Austin's spring social calendar April 28–30. As always, the core Texas chef lineup will be complemented by appearances from national luminaries like Christina Tosi, Ludo Lefebvre, and Ming Tsai. With two options for tickets— The Weekender ($250) and The All-In ($625)—the fest appeals to Grazers and Gourmands alike. FOR GRAZERS Big bites: The Weekender pass provides access to daytime events at Auditorium Shores on Saturday and Sunday, so head straight for the Chef Showcase. On Saturday, make a beeline for the trio of Supper, Stiles Switch, and Southerleigh; Sunday's worthy stops include newcomers The Brewer's Table, Fukumoto, and Bonhomie by Uchi veteran Philip Speer, who says: "It will we great to show people who we are. It's an awesome opportunity in one four-ounce bite." Hot topics: Another signature feature of the festival are chef "fire pits." Gather around the flames and ask questions of Bryce Gilmore (Odd Duck), Sonya Coté (Eden East), CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Head to the Chef Showcase for delectable bites; Austin Food + Wine Festival co-founder Tim Love won the last Rock Your Taco contest with a fried beef tendon taco, made of braised oryx and pickled vegetables; pastry chefs will dish out the sweets; as a prelude to the fest, the five-course Feast Under the Stars is a separate ticketed event on Thursday night, featuring a course each from star festival chefs.
