Saturday April 14, 2018

Join us in beautiful Baldwin Park as we celebrate the Orlando culinary scene. A complete experience, the evening will feature an intimate food and wine festival with picturesque Lake Baldwin and Harbor Park as the backdrop. Over 25 top tier local restaurants will be serving flavorful dishes each paired with a fine wine from Augustan Wine Imports. Also in attendance will be local breweries, Coppertail and Central 28, along with Original Sin Hard Cider. For those that would like something a bit more "high test", Woodford Reserve will be featuring their whiskey and St. Augustine Distillery their vodka and gin. Savor the cuisine and beverages while enjoying a live performance by The Legendary JC's on a state of the art stage provided by Fullsail University.

For those seeking a more exclusive experience, the VIP admission includes everything above along with a private cocktail event taking place inside The Osprey Tavern. Special guest chefs from our neighboring cities of Tampa and Miami will be working side by side with Executive Chef, Joseph Burnett, and Pastry Chef, Kristy Carlucci, preparing hors d'oeuvres and mignardises while craft cocktails, champagne and fine wines are poured from your own private bar. Chef Burnett and The Osprey Tavern team welcome you to their Friends of James Beard Benefit.
