Just when we thought we were recovered from this year's South Beach Wine and Food Festival, the lineup for the 2016 festival has just been announced. For its 15th installment it will be returning to South Beach on February 24-28, 2016.
Many of the marquee events are back like Burger Bash, Meatopia, Best of the Best and the signature Grand Tasting Village. Ft. Lauderdale is also getting into the fun this year with a new Taste Fort Lauderdale Series that will feature a dinner by Robert Irvine and a "selection of intimate dinner experiences taking place at various Fort Lauderdale restaurants" from chefs like Todd English and Marc Vetri and finishing with a Bloody Mary Brunch hosted by the Cast of Chopped.
As for the new events added to the lineup this year there will be a Grilled Cheese Happy Hour hosted by Laura Werlin and Ms. Cheezious, Midnight Breakfast hosted by Chrissy Teigen and Fireman Derek, Dessert Party hosted by Duff Goldman, Croquetamania hosted by Jean-Georges Vongerichten and the festival's first ever Glatt Kosher dinner.
The Festival’s presale for MasterCard begins on Monday, October 5 at 9 a.m. online at www.sobefest.com or by calling 877-762-3933. Public ticket sales open at midnight on Monday, October 19.
