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!
