One city, four days, and all five senses. 

November 1-4, 2018 in and around Richmond, Virginia

Fire, Flour & Fork is a four-day gathering for the food curious. It celebrates the best the Richmond region has to offer: its complex history, its rich artistic community and its established and rising culinary stars.  What to expect: a mix of dining events, behind-the-scenes tours, demonstrations, talks from food and beverage producers, cookbook authors,  chefs, bartenders and bakers.

Many of our events reflected 2018's theme: Your Fork, Your Future where we unlocked the power of the recipe box, looking at the stories recipes tell both within families and within social and political movements fueled by food.

The signature events below were just part of forty+ events during Fire, Flour & Fork 2018!





Signature Events

Every day during FFF, along with our many guest chef lunches and dinners, talks and tours, a signature event with multiple chefs is held around a theme. 


Thanksgiving Throwdown, presented by C.F. Sauer, where Virginia takes on  Massachusetts for the title of first (and best) Thanksgiving. Beneficiary: Tricycle Urban Ag.


Around the World/Around the Lake, presented by Libbie Mill Midtown, where you'll travel from Central America to the Pacific Islands and beyond at Libbie Mill Midtown. Beneficiary: Shalom Farms.


Smoke on the Water, presented by Cavalier Produce, rolls the roasted meats, fish and vegetables over to Henricus. Beneficiary: Shalom Farms.


John Dabney Dinner, presented by Virginia is for Lovers honoring the Lambert family in VMFA's Marble Hall with special guest, Carla Hall. Beneficiary: VMFA Foundation.


More than a meal; multi-sensory and meaningful โ€“ each signature event dives deep into a compelling culinary story and provides many layers of experience. We've saved a seat for you, so you don't have to worry that the tickets will sell out in three minutes!


Hereโ€™s one food festival I wonโ€™t be missing. Neither should you!
