More than 750 fans of fine food and award-winning wines gathered for the second annual Farm & Vineyard Faire chaired by Doug and April Konopka at Fulshear Run, a prestigious new acreage-lot residential community in Fulshear. Honorary event chairs were Richmond Mayor Evalyn Moore and local civic and business leaders, Carole McCann, Robert Crosser and Ken Stubbe.
The sunny afternoon featured farm-to-fork signature bites from a slew of chefs, family-fun activities, and programming provided by Forever Fulshear/Fulshear Farmers’ Market where attendees learned about the health benefits of local honey and homegrown herbs.
Highlighting the event were meet-and-greets with celebrity chefs Monica Pope of Bravo’s “Top Chef Masters” and Jose Hernandez of Radio Milano, plus organically-themed presentations.
Proceeds from the event benefited the Friends of Fort Bend County Historical Commission. Doug Konopka, event host and president of DHK Development, developer of Fulshear Run, introduced members of the Historical Commission and presented them with a colorful Faire apron signed by the top chefs in appreciation for their outstanding contributions to the county.
