Highlands Food & Wine, with support from the Southern Foodways Alliance, invites you to a celebration honoring Louis Osteen. Seven All-Star chefs convene in Highlands, NC to offer a culinary tribute to their friend and mentor. The evening will also serve as the official premiere of “The Many Lives of Louis Osteen,” a documentary short produced by The Southern Foodways Alliance. Your ticket to the evening will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a four-course meal complete with wine pairings, live music and exclusive viewing of the film.

“Louis Osteen was there at the beginning. In the 1980s when America began to codify and interpret regional food culture, he led a reckoning that began in restaurant kitchens and at damask-draped tables and still ripples throughout our nation.”
- John T Edge, director, Southern Foodways Alliance -
