The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine is a national, star-studded, four-day destination event showcasing the talents of the world’s most renowned wine and spirits producers, chefs and culinary personalities. Hosted by Southern Wine & Spirits of Florida and Florida International University (FIU), the festival benefits FIU’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management Teaching Restaurant and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center. To date, the Festival has raised more than $10 million for the School.

Once again, the Festival gathers all that glistens for an unparalleled series of brunches and dinners to keep your taste buds dancing all weekend long:
• The Brilliance of France – dinner prepared by chefs Pascal Nibaudeau (Le Pressoir d’Argent at The Regent Grand Hotel Bordeaux) and Jean-Marie Gautier (Le Villa Eugenie at the Hôtel du
Palais in Biarritz)
• Dolce Brunch hosted by Gail Simmons and Michael White
• Barilla Interactive Lunch hosted by Bryan and Michael Voltaggio
• Italian in Paradise hosted by Giada De Laurentiis
• Barilla Interactive Dinner hosted by CHOPPED stars Ted Allen with Marc Murphy, Alex Guarnaschelli and Aarón Sánchez
• Wine + Dine + Design – the Festival’s ultimate dine around in Miami’s trendy Design District
• Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink Brunch at Sea
• Paula Deen’s Down Home Cookin’ Sunday Gospel Brunch

The 2011 Festival features returning fan-favorite events, including the Wine Spectator Wine Seminar series and Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village, and plenty of new soirées to keep the celebration going all weekend long! For its 10th year, the Festival is pleased to honor one of the world’s most revered chefs at its Tribute Dinner honoring Alain Ducasse presented by Bank of America on Saturday, February 26. A veritable who’s who of the culinary world will be in attendance to pay homage to Chef Ducasse, a chef who has earned more Michelin Stars than any of his colleagues.

Planned especially for this year, the dynamic duo of Emeril Lagasse and Martha Stewart will host the Festival’s featured 10th anniversary celebration Let Them Eat Cake presented by Ocean Drive magazine on Friday, February 25 in the contemporary new space at 1111 Lincoln Road. Here, no fewer than 10 pastry chefs, cake artists and renowned confectioners, including Margaret Braun, Jacques Torres, and Food Network’s Duff Goldman, will present decadent delicacies to complement the cocktails and Moët & Chandon Champagne that will be flowing all night long!

Thursday, February 24 – Sunday, February 27, 2011 will mark the 10th year of the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine. The 2011 Festival will also celebrate the release of the official Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival cookbook (Clarkson Potter), due for publication in November 2010, written by Lee Brian Schrager with Julie Mautner, featuring a foreword by Anthony Bourdain. Returning Festival favorites and new programming is in the works.

In commemoration of the Festival’s 10th year, Schrager will release the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook (Clarkson Potter, $35/hardcover) on November 16, 2010. The book features a foreword from none-other than Anthony Bourdain, as well as an array of recipes from the nation’s favorite celebrity chefs and culinary personalities. In addition, it provides a behind-the-scenes look at the chefs, events and food that make the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival the most prestigious gourmet gathering in America. Like the overall Festival, all proceeds from the cookbook will benefit the Florida International University (FIU) School of Hospitality and Tourism Management and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center located on FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus.

All proceeds of the Festival benefit the students of the Florida International University School of Hospitality and Tourism Management who also assist Festival organizers with sponsorship fulfillment, restaurant and exhibitor recruitment, logistics, and inventory as well as working alongside some of the world’s greatest celebrity chefs and winemakers.

The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food &Wine is produced by Florida International University and Southern Wine & Spirits of Florida with the support of the Miami Beach Visitors & Convention Authority and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.
