Summer hot-spot Savannah cooks up a storm next week when the Savannah Food & Wine Festival (SFWF) fans out across the historic coastal city November 9-15. Chef Shaun Doty is leaving his roosts at Bantam + Biddy and Chick-a-Biddy for a few days to contribute his talents to the annual eat-drink-repeat extravaganza of tastings, tours, classes and dinners. Doty and other regional and nationally recognized culinary talent, sommeliers and winemakers will pour themselves into a VIP Artisanal Supper of “Food, Drink & Music on the Green” at The Landings on Friday, November 13. From 7-10 p.m., guests can hobnob with chefs while sampling Georgia Grown and artisanal creations, wines, spirits and beer at indoor and outdoor culinary stations. Tickets for the dinner are $135 per person; purchase here. Chef Doty puts his own taste buds to work as a judge at SFWF’s huge Taste of Savannah event at the Georgia State Railroad Museum on Saturday, November 14 from 1-5 p.m. Buy tickets, $65 and up, here.
