  • Eggs on the Beach

    Along with the Fisher House of the Emerald Coast, Food For Thought is honored to be a return beneficiary of this year's Eggs On The Beach grilling competition. Make plans to join us on October 15th for the 8th Annual, Bay Breeze Patio, Eggs on the Beach! 

    What is an EggFest?
    An EggFest is a gathering of people who love the Big Green Egg. The Big Green Egg is an all-in-one smoker and grill, and those who have tried it know that everything tastes better on the Egg. Foods are so delicious that the Big Green Egg now has a loyal following of chefs and admirers (also known as "EggHeads") who specialize in cooking great-tasting food using only these grills. EggHeads travel from all over the country to cook and compete for best tasting dish.

    Presented by Bay Breeze Patio, Eggs on the Beach will be held at Seascape Resort in Miramar Beach, just east of Destin, Florida. The next EggFest will be be held on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will be complemented by the scenic coastal setting, resort amenities, live music and more. 

    There are two groups who attend EggFest: Cooks and Tasters. Cooks bring their own food and cook a variety of dishes on a Big Green Egg, which is provided for each cooking team. Tasters come to taste the delectable dishes and vote on their favorites.
