Omni Amelia Island Plantation is thrilled to host its first annual “Fish-to-Fork” culinary weekend in collaboration with the James Beard Foundation from May 15 – 17, 2014, benefiting the James Beard Foundation Scholarship Program. The resort is excited to partner with Jackson Family Fine Wines, Bacardi USA, and Amelia Angler Outfitters as official sponsors of the event.
 
Offering an unmatched “foodie” experience, including true farm-to-table and dock-to-dish specialties, one-of-a-kind dining opportunities and an interactive atmosphere, the resort will welcome six renowned chefs from across the country to showcase their skills with a fishing excursion and exciting culinary challenges. The chefs will ultimately be tested with a live vote from event guests on their favorite prepared dishes at the final chef showdown on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 6 – 10 pm. Additional information is available at fish-to-fork.com.
 
Travel packages also are available for purchase now though May 15, 2014.
