With fall approaching, food festivals will start to ramp up in the city of Wichita. There will be all sorts of fun food and drink-related events popping up over the next couple of months. One of them is a brand new one put on by Mark Arts called The Crave Culinary Festival.
Mark Arts is no secret to the culinary arts scene in Wichita. Since their opening in 2018, they’ve been putting on cooking classes in their state-of-the-art kitchen. The same kitchen has hosted cooking competitions before as well.
Now they will be hosting a five-day festival to celebrate the world of food and drink. During those five days, there will be workshops, tastings, food trucks and more. The Crave Culinary Festival takes place September 21 to September 25. Tickets will be sold to each of the events which include tastings hosted by Free State Brewing, how to make the perfect crème brûlée, a cocktail class from The Belmont’s Becky Reynolds with Standard Beverage’s Brock Mellinger and Karl Lakin, a Hawaiian luau workshop, a farm-to-table dinner put on by Chef Katharine Elder of Elderslie Farm, a Riedel wine tasting, and you can be the first in Kansas to taste O’Shaughnessy Distilling Company’s newly released Keeper’s Heart Whiskey while dining on food from The Belmont and Chester’s Chophouse. There’s more such as a foodie fair that includes food from local restaurants.
