2005 FOOD NETWORK SOUTH BEACH WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL

February 25-27, 2005

Hosted by Southern Wine & Spirits of Florida, a division of the nation’s largest beverage distributor and the top-rated School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University, the Festival continues its tradition of taking South Florida’s culinary profile to a new level by inviting thousands of local and visiting gourmets to enjoy a decadent yet sophisticated good time.

World-renowned chefs and internationally acclaimed vintners last year dazzled fest-goers as much with their delectable treats as with their cooking demonstrations, wine seminars and educational discussions. “Anyone who truly loves food, wine and spirits comes here,” Festival Director Lee Brian Schrager says. “Whether they participate in the entire weekend or attend just a part of it, people understand that they will enjoy the highest quality of offerings and an opportunity to learn something as well, all in one of the most beautiful settings in the world, South Beach in the winter.”
