Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival 2012 Offers Food Truck: Impossible Tickets
The Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival is this weekend, bringing celebrity chefs, amazing dinners, and lots of fine vino to south Florida. On the roster of events, which includes multiple parties, celebrities grilling at Burgers by the Beach, and a Grand Tasting, is the Golf Digest Celebrity Chef Golf Cup and Food Truck: Impossible presented by Regions Wealth Management.
The event, at $200, includes a foursome of golf where you can swing a
club with celebrity chefs, golf pros, and restaurateurs then feast on a
variety of food trucks competing for a coveted spot at the Grand Tasting
finale. Only problem? You've got no game (we're talking golf here).
Due to the demand of non-golfers everywhere, tickets
have just gone on sale for the Food Trucks: Impossible party only. The
event, held December 7 at 4 p.m. at the Breakers West Golf Club (1550 Flagler Parkway, West Palm Beach), features
celebrity host Robert Irvine judging six of south Florida's best food
trucks in a battle in which only one truck lives to participate in
Tuesday's Grand Tasting.
While you're watching the competition,
feast on food from the trucks and schmooze with celebrity chefs Marc
Vetri (Vetri Restaurant); Fabio Viviani ( Firenze Osteria & Top
Chef); Dean Max (3030 Ocean); Kevin Sbraga (Sbraga & Top Chef);
Clay Conley (Buccan); Marc Summers (Host of Food Network's Unwrapped);
Marc Murphy (Benchmark Restaurants); Darryl Moiles (Four Seasons); and
Julien Gremaud (Pistache French Bistro).
Food trucks serving up
gourmet fare include B.C. Tacos; Claw Daddy; Curbside Gourmet; Hong Kong Wffle; Palate Prty; and Stocked N Loaded. Tickets are $75 and are
available by calling 561-389-1222 or visiting pbfoodwinefest.com.
