Raise a glass in memory of our festival friend

Fuller Goldsmith

This year, the Food & Wine Festival mourns the passing of a special person in our lives. Fuller Goldsmith, festival friend, contributing chef, 2019 Food & Wine Festival Best of Show recipient, and Food Networks’ 2017 “Top Chef Junior.”

As we celebrate his many accomplishments and positive influence in the culinary community and beyond, consider a donation to Fuller’s Fund, benefiting Children’s of Alabama as well as funding scholarships for budding chefs.
