SOUTH BEACH FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL!!

Hello guys,

How was your weekend? I hope it was as great as mine!! On Saturday I went to the South Beach Food & Wine Festival for the first time as a guest( I used to work there almost every year!). For whomever is not familiar with what the SOBE Food & Wine Fest is, it is what it says: a major celebration of food and wine ( and everything with alcohol in it, really!) . This festival spreads every year( in February) all over hotels, bars, restaurants and tents on the beach of Miami; gathering all the major food talents and chefs in the world like Martha Steward, Anthony Bourdain, chef Gaston Acurio, chef Emeril Lagasse, chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa( NOBU and Matsuhisa restaurants) among many many others. There are different events happening simultaneously during the weekend it happens and the one we chose to go to was one of the most popular ones:  the Grand Tasting Village; which is situated under tents right on the beach. For a set price, the ticket for The Grand Tasting Village lets you sample hundreds of restaurant foods and liquors from all over the world during a whole day or during the entire weekend( depending on the type of pass you buy) and also watch presentations made by the talents already mentioned above. It’s a fun and delightful experience! Delightful in every sense of the word! 🙂

Oi pessoal,

Como foi o final de semana de voces? espero que tenha sido tao bom quanto o meu!! No sabado, eu fui para o South Beach Food and Wine Festival pela primeira vez como convidada( eu trabalhava lah quase todo ano!). Pra quem nao conhece o SOBE Food & Wine Fest; esse festival eh exatamente o que fala: uma celebracao de comida( food) e vinho( wine) (e tudo que tem alcool, na verdade!). O festival se espalha todo ano( em fevereiro) por varios hoteis, restaurantes, bares e tendas na areia em Miami; reunindo uns dos maiores chefs e talentos mundiais de comida como  Martha Steward, Anthony Bourdain, chef Gaston Acurio, chef Emeril Lagasse, chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa (restaurantes NOBU and Matsuhisa) entre muitos outros. Ha varios eventos acontecendo simultaneamente durante o final de semana que o festival acontece e o que escolhemos ir foi um dos eventos mais populares: O Grand Tasting VIllage; que fica embaixo de tendas bem na areia da praia. Por um preco fixo, o ingresso do Grand Tasting Village te da o direito de provar comidas de varios restaurantes e provar bebidas de diferentes partes do mundo durante um dia todo ou durante o final de semana inteiro( depende do tipo de ingresso que voce compra) e tambem assistir apresentacoes dos talentos que mencionei acima. Eh uma experiencia muito divertida e saborosa! 🙂
