Devour Food, Film & Fizz

The Sonoma International Film Festival once again collaborated with Devour!  to present a “Chefs & Shorts” Culinary Event Honoring Chef Jacques Pépin.

EatDrinkFilms is proud to offer you a chance to watch some of the short films that were paired with these chefs dishes.

We only wish we could offer you some of the wonderful food and drink. But until someone invents a way to eat off your screen we are lucky to be able to participate in this part of the event. And you can visit the various restaurants that participated.
