About Us...

At FEAST Food Tours & Culinary Events, we have over nine years of experience creating memorable tours & events that connect Charlotte's culinary community.

Founded in 2012 by Kristi Martin, FEAST brings her 15+ years of experience in the event planning industry together with her passions for food and travel to produce unique ways to explore the culture and flavors of the Queen City.

We welcome you to join us around the table with the chefs, restauranteurs, farmers, and artisans who are pushing Charlotte's culinary scene forward.  Maybe you'll be enlightened about a new ingredient, witness an impressive cooking demonstration, or discover your new favorite place to gather with friends and family - maybe you'll experience all of that.

At FEAST, it's about more than food and drink; it's the stories we tell and the memories we make that bring us together.
