SoBe Wine and Food

Recommended Posts

Bond Girl and I will be meeting up at this weekend's SoBe Wine and Food Festival, and then writing about it for the Daily Gullet. Anyone else going?

I would usually go but I cannot smell or taste anything due to a cold :sad:

I would go if I had the money. I'd love to see Alton Brown and Bourdain. I guess I'll have to live vicariously through your article...you better have lots of details (and pictures?) :)

Hi, Washington DC egulleter sure could use restaurant recs for Lincoln Road/SoBe area. Is little Havana worth the trip? Stone crabs besides Joes? Good, fairly priced wine lists a big plus for this wino couple. Thanks

Due to a last minute reappropriation of funds I was able to go on Saturday. It was a good time. I was real dissappointed that Alton Brown was unable to attend (he had a fairly serious heart scare for those who haven't heard), but I really enjoyed Rose Levy-Berenbaum and Bourdain as far as the clinics were concerned.

As far as the tasting went, I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed with the sheer number of things to taste. I had some pretty good cheeses and some pretty good wines, but it wasn't an environment that allowed me to make a complete analysis of anything. (or maybe it was all the shots of Bailey's I slugged. They had a stand right in the middle of everything, and always had some set out and ready to go, so ended up consuming about 3 by the end of the day.) Overall a great time though. Here is a picture I took of everyones favorite gulleteer:

He basically just shot the shit with the crowd for around an hour. He talked for about 10 min. and then took Q&A for the next 50 min. He was hysterical. I can post more pics, but they are pretty much all of him talking or laughing.

edit: he is sitting on the counter of the demo kitchen that was set up for clinics throughout the day. They were donated by KA, hence all the KA infomercial look.

I once saw our own Steve Klc do a chocolate demonstration under the banner of some manufacturer--it was probably KitchenAid or Cuisinarts--and he pulls out this odd little turquoise mini blender from some southeast Asian country and starts extolling the benefits of a machine he picked up at some offbeat shop. That the damn good handouts of his dark chocolate encased foie gras and ice wine jelly, made my day. :biggrin:

Anthony Bourdain's longtime sous-chef and consigliere, the notorious (as seen in such books as Kitchen Confidential) Steven Tempel, succumbs to the vortex-like pull of celebrity at a small gathering for Le Bernardin chef Eric Ripert.  Asked to confirm reports that an extremely gracious Lagasse and a stunned Bourdain were seen chatting amicably were met by an uncomfortably long pause and a  terse no comment from Bourdain's office. Rumors continue to float here in Miami that Bourdain subsequently hanged himself in his shower stall.

Is little Havana worth the trip?

Only if you want Cuban food :wink: . What kinds of food do you want - and what price range are you looking in? Where will you be staying - and do you have a car? Robyn
