IMG_0481

It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since Atlanta entrepreneurs Dominique Love and Elizabeth Feichter first launched the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival as a four-day culinary experience celebrating the South. With an Advisory Council of more than 80 award-winning talent from 13 Southern states and the District of Columbia, the festival, now in its fifth year, has put a spotlight on the city of Atlanta as one of the leading culinary destinations in the country today. After taking a look back at the #AFWF15 founders top 5 moments from the last five years, the founders here at Eat. Drink. Repeat. wanted to share our own top 5 favorite moments as well. While we came up with them separately, there were, not surprisingly, some fun commonalities – fried chicken, chocolate, favorite chefs and tasting tents. So read on for some inspiration, and if you haven’t already, buy tickets, because things are in full swing and there’s an entire festival weekend of food & wine calling your name!

Eating Well + An Exclusive Brunch Experience Giveaway

Kale + Egg + Farro at Ladybird Atlanta

When you’ve been writing for a food blog as long as we have, you’ll definitely have your fair share of delicious food. But then some of us (cough, me, cough) will have forgotten to exercise and balance it out along the way with healthier food options. So recently, I decided I had to start taking a more holistic approach to wellness in order to improve my well-being. But the part that worried me the most was substituting the decadent (Boeuf Bourguignon) with the practical (kale salads and steamed salmon) and still being able to enjoy my meal. The question became – can food be good for you and delicious? The answer I’m happy to share is yes! Recently, the team here at Eat. Drink. Repeat. partnered with the Food Should Taste Good®  brand to explore this concept further, and we couldn’t wait to get started.
