Recipes from South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook

South Beach Wine and Food Festival Cookbook

Once a year, the world’s finest and most beloved chefs (and the foodies who love them) converge on Miami’s South Beach for a long weekend of sand, sun, music, and truly extraordinary cuisine. Now, in celebration of the festival’s tenth year, the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook brings the glamour and the flavors of the festival to the home kitchen.

Festival founder and director Lee Brian Schrager takes readers on an unparalleled all-access tour of this event, with movers and shakers of the food world and an all-star cast of chefs, including Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Tom Colicchio, Thomas Keller, Alice Waters, and Paula Deen. Interviews and insider stories take readers into the tents, private parties, and the very best events—such as Rachael’s Burger Bash, the BubbleQ (champagne and barbecue!), and the Grand Tasting Village on the beach.

Of course, in the book as at the festival, it’s the amazing food that takes center stage. The tastes and smells of SoBe come alive in 100 tantalizing recipes for Drinks, Starters and Small Plates, Barbecue, Burgers, Comfort and Casual Food, Main Courses, and Desserts.

With a foreword by Anthony Bourdain and peppered with anecdotes and gorgeous photography of South Beach, the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook will transport readers to this exciting celebration Emeril has dubbed “Spring Break for chefs.”

Watermelon Sorbet

Watermelon Sorbet

No ice cream maker required. Just watermelon, citrus, sweetness, mint, and a little time in the deep freeze. Vodka optional. Then all you do is scoop it up and plop it in a pretty bowl.

A glass of lemon-cucumber cocktail with a sprig of mint, a lemon wheel, and a slice of cucumber.

Lemon Cucumber Cocktail

A gentle and genteel sipper, this libation draws on gin, cucumber, club soda, mint, and the lilt of lemon as a solution to lazy, languid summer nights.

Creamy Coleslaw

Creamy Coleslaw

Sweet and simple. Nothing but cabbage, cider vinegar, sugar, mayo, a little onion, salt, and oil. Just like you’d find at a BBQ shack.
