EatBeat: South Beach Wine and Food Fest 2011 Tickets on Sale Now

October 28th, 2010 · No Comments

The beachin’est wine event in South Florida, the annual South Beach Wine and Food Festival held oceanside, Miami Beach, is just around a few pages away on the calendar. Feb. 24-27, 2011 is the 10th anniversary of the event, started by Lee Schrager.

To mark the anniversary, a cookbook is being released for the festival Nov. 16 – the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook (Clarkson Potter, $35/hardcover; you can pre-order from the website).



This year’s line-up of chefs and personalities from around the country include the Food Network stars Emeril Lagasse, Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay; other notables are Ace of Cakes baker Duff Goldman, fest-goer favorite Tony Bourdain of No Reservations!, Mexican food expert Rick Bayless, Charlie Trotter of Chicago and dozens more.

A number of wine seminars, including the popular “Does the glass make a difference?” (you’ll be surprised), mixology seminars (Prohibition cocktails is one) and lifestyle seminars will be held during the event.

The Grand Tasting Village under the beachfront tents are the big draw, however. A number of authors are on hand to sign cookbooks, hundreds of wines and spirits are poured and as many restaurants and food providers offer small plates for tasting. Cooking demos and lectures are given throughout the day both days.

For a full line-up and to order tickets, go to the fest’s website: www.sobefest.com
