Austin's culinary community will come together to honor and raise funds for the city’s beloved and former editor of the Austin Chronicle, Virginia B. Wood. Stock up on delicious baked goods from 30 of Central Texas' top pastry chefs and restaurants as they raise money for Wood’s medical care in the beautiful wine garden of Lenoir. With talented chefs pulling out all of the stops, 100 percent of all sales will go back to Wood's fund, with donations also accepted on site.

Feast on bites from an all-star roster of chefs with special offerings that include brisket kolaches from David Norman of Easy Tiger & Aaron Franklin of Franklin Barbecue and chili-roasted squash tamales from Jessica Maher & Todd Duplechan of Lenoir.
