Meatopia — the food festival called “the meat-lover’s paradise” (New York Times) and “a glorious city of meat” (Huffington Post), is bringing 32 of the country’s greatest chefs to Pearl on November 2-3. Now in its 10th year, Meatopia — a world-class culinary event founded and hosted by Esquire food columnist Josh Ozersky — is coming to San Antonio by way of New York City.
Presented by H-E-B, this culinary weekend highlights the collaboration between the country’s best meat producers and chefs as they prepare a diverse and exciting menu all over live fire on site during the event.
Chefs cooking include Paul Qui of Austin’s Qui, Chris Shepherd of Houston’s Underbelly, Ford Fry of Decatur’s No.246, Adam Perry Lang from Daisy May’s, NY, and Tim Byres of Smoke in Dallas, as well as San Antonio chefs such as Bruce Auden, Jesse Perez, Tim Rattray and many more.
“I wanted to create an event that would make all carnivores everywhere proud and happy,” Josh Ozersky says. “I’ve done events in New York, London, San Francisco, and other places but I’ve always dreamed of coming to Texas, the world’s capital of beef and barbecue and live-fire cooking. Between a dream team of Texas chefs (as well as some meat all-stars from the rest of the country), an incredible assortment of small-farm and heritage animals, and some of the best live music we’ve ever had, I think this might end up being the greatest event in Meatopia’s 10-year history.”
