You Should Go to South Beach Food & Wine Festival

We’re still stuffed from last weekend’s 2014 New York City Wine & Food Festival, but it’s already time to start thinking about flying south for the winter. The 2015 South Beach Wine & Food Festival is coming quickly (February 19-22), and trust us: Feasting in Florida in February is a genius idea.

For four days, top Cooking Channel and Food Network talents will converge on the warm, sunny Miami coastline to cook, drink and hang out. The events hit on nearly every taste, whether you’re a yogi, an unstoppable carnivore or an unabashed cupcake fiend. And you’ll be doing it all alongside the food industry’s top talents, including Debi Mazar & Gabriele Corcos, Rev Run, Aarón Sánchez, Alex Guarnaschelli, Rachael Ray, Giada de Laurentiis, Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay and more.

Tickets are already selling out, so get on it. There are tons of events to choose from, but if we had to play culinary concierge, here’s what we’d recommend.

Paella by the Pool (with Jose Andres) — 7pm
