My Trip to South Beach Wine & Food Festival 2017

Every year, if my busy schedule allows, I always try to attend the annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami, Florida. The national, star-studded, multiple day event showcases today’s most distinguished spirits producers, chefs and culinary personalities. Proceeds go to The Florida International University Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. This institution is one of the top hospitality management schools in the United States.

This year, I attended luncheons and dinners, and spoke at various events. I also conducted a book signing for “Vegetables: Inspired Recipes and Tips for Choosing, Cooking and Enjoying the Freshest Seasonal Flavors", and I hosted a wonderful cocktails and dinner affair at Stephen Starr's well-known restaurant, Le Zoo.

But first, I spent a little time in Palm Beach, one of my favorite vacation spots. It was a very busy and wonderful trip - enjoy these photos.
