Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival Starts December 9; Tickets Available Now

What to get the food snob on your holiday list when a membership to the Stinky Cheese of the Month Club won't do? How 'bout an early gift, by way of a ticket to one of the five events that are part of the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival from December 9 to 13?

Florida culinary stars like Michelle Bernstein and Michael Schwartz share a roster with out-of-towners, like Chopped guest judge Scott Conant and celeb chef Ingrid Hoffman, for this foodie extravaganza, held at various locations throughout Palm Beach.

Tickets range from $75 (advance tickets to the Fifth-Annual Grand Tasting on December 13) to $250 for "an evening" with food critic and author John Mariani on December 10 at the Breakers. Advance tickets are required for some events and are cheaper than paying at the door in all cases.

A portion of the proceeds from the weekend's events benefits the James Beard Foundation's Educational programs.
