The 2015 Eat Drink Read Write Festival will be Oct. 6 - 9, 2015 at various Birmingham locations.

This year's Eat Drink Read Write festival is structured around the concept of a four course dinner and will serve up tantalizing offerings that appeal to a variety of tastes and audiences. The festival brings together food, culinary arts, and literature in an engaging format for the entertainment and enrichment of the entire community.  

A major highlight of the week will be the Thursday, Oct. 8 presentation from Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito of Baked NYC, a New York bakery that has been featured on various national media outlets. The bakery's brownie has been listed as one of "Oprah's Favorite Things." Lewis is a graduate of the University of Alabama.

They are former ad men, turned bakery owners and cookbook authors. They will discuss their bakery, dole out samples from their restaurant and more. Their 2010 book, Baked Explorations, is a tribute to American treats and baked goods that range from regional gems to family secrets.

EDRW will end on Friday, Oct. 9 with Bards & Brews poetry and beer sampling event at the Central Library.

Most EDRW events are free.

What to Eat in Birmingha


We should look for someone to eat and drink with before looking for something to eat and drink. ~Epicurus
