The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine is an absolute must-do in a life time for any self respecting Foodie. In fact, if you are a foodie and don’t yet have a Christmas Gift for yourself, book a ticket TODAY. I am not kidding, you will thank yourself for buying your best gift to self later — I mean, TODAY.
We at eCreamery are absolutley thrilled to have created a very special 10th Anniversary SOBE Flavor for Lee Brian Schrager and all our friends at the Festival. Available at eCreamery.com/Pick Your Pints section only until the 2011 Festival in February. “SOBE: 10 Years in the Making” is all about Coconut, Rum, Chocolates and Macadamia Nuts. Oh, so good and oh, so South Beach. (Umbrella not included.)
eCreamery (Abby & I) were guests at last year’s Perrier Jouet’s BubbleQ hosted by Emeril Lagasse. We served the fantastic “Drunken Monkey” ice cream and a Perrier-Jouet infused sorbetto to 3,000 guests literally on the sandy beach of Miami. As hostesses poured Perrier-Jouet champagne while suspended from the ceiling, upside down and in lime green leotards nonetheless, it was quite undebatable that this Festival is a Foodie Bucket List kind of event. (You can see our pictures of the 2010 BubbleQ on eCreamery’s Facebook page). Another very cool aspect of the event is that all proceeds from the Festival benefit Florida International University’s School of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
We highly recommend you check out the very special ice cream flavor and the Festival itself. They have incredible things planned for the 10th Anniversary edition including a Martha Stewart & Emeril Lagasse hosted “Let Them Eat Cake” Party with the likes of Duff Goldman from Charm City Cakes, in attendence and the ever amazing Rachael Ray’s Burger Bash with Amstel Light and Gourmet Burgers galore. Like I said, buy the ticket today and mark your calendar for Feb. 24, 2011.
