Second annual Memphis Food and Wine Festival features top chefs

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The second annual Memphis Food and Wine Festival got underway Saturday night.

The festival, which was held at Memphis Botanic Garden, featured Chef Guy Savoy, a world-renown chef, along with dozens of top local and regional chefs.

Guests got to sample dishes from 33 chefs from around the country, serving dishes alongside some of the best wines in the world!

It also drew the interest of Gary Selesner, the president of Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, who has been helping line up celebrity chefs for the event.

"We're just proud to be here, at this festival, it's an up-and-coming festival in the country and of course to support a great cause here in Memphis," Selesner said.

Proceeds from the event will benefit FedExFamilyHouse, which offers housing for out-of-town families with sick children being treated at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.
