AquaCurean Gourmet Seafood Festival, Savannah GA

01 September 2015


AquaCurean was such a beautiful event!  The gourmet Seafood Festival was hosted by the Westin in Savannah Georgia and coordinated by Jan Gourley who also coordinates the annual Savannah Food and Wine Festival. Several local restaurants, bars and distilleries were present to offer up some of their best goodies!  Most of the sea creatures that you can imagine made an appearance:  shrimp, lobster, crab, octopus and more...



















A little history about the festival:

"As the name of the event “AquaCurean” implies water and epicurean, the event will showcase some of best seafood and hand-crafted spirits from Savannah and around the country. The AquaCurean Challenge includes a seafood recipe competition and a hand-crafted cocktail competition.
 
The mission of this event is to create a community event that draws participation from the local and national stages. Moreover, its goal is to raise money for children’s charities here in Savannah with this years event raising $10,000 for the foundation."


There were two floors full treats to try.  I think my favorite drink was the lemonade bourbon from Savannah Bourbon.  I've totally gotta connect with that guy!  I made the mistake of doing a little bit more spirit tasting than eating, so I had to pace myself.  LOL  But, I had an absolute blast!  I met so many great restaurant owners and bar owners, etc.  Looks like I've got a lot of new places to try when I come back to Savannah.  I hope you enjoy the pictures and I hope to be there next year!
