Broward and Palm Beach counties seem to have food festivals, like, every other weekend. If it's not a beer fest, it's a wine fest or particular city, town, neighborhood, street, or whatever else.
It's cultural events such as these that draw seasonal and year-round residents to this active little region of ours.
Although any occasion that includes tons of food and alcoholic drinks is never going to be a bad time, one local event stands out from the pack by drawing in celebrity chefs such as Daniel Boulud and Restaurant Impossible's Robert Irvine from across the country. That little gathering, which was just noted in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week, would be the Palm Beach Wine and Food Festival; and it just released its lineup, schedule, and tickets for 2013.

Taking place Friday, December 13, through Tuesday, December 17, the five-day festival will bring in new and returning celebrity chefs from South Florida and around the country.
"After months of hard work and planning, we're excited to announce we've expanded the schedule of events, such as Kids Kitchen, a hands-on cooking class with Robert Irivne and Christina Tosi; chef afterparties Cloud 9 and Cypress Room High Tea; and the roster of new chefs and television personalities like Ted Allen, Todd English, Christina Tosi, Amanda Freitag, and Johnny Iuzzini to the festival," said event organizer David Sabin. "And of course, we're glad to welcome back chefs like Daniel Boulud, Robert Irvine, Marc Murphy, David Burke, and many more. Now we're just looking forward to the actual festival!"
