We know that the South Beach Food & Wine Festival isn't until next year -- February 19 thru 22 to be exact -- but tickets for the event go quicker than cake at fat camp. So be aware that tickets for all the Food & Wine events goes on sale October 27, and yes, we suggest you purchase tickets then if you really want to go.
You can already start planning out your Food & Wine week because the festival already has some of the events listed. Everyone from Tyler Florence, Michelle Bernstein, Eric Ripert, Emeril Lagasse, Michael Schwartz and more will be on hand for cooking demos, wine tasting and everything in between. Unfortunately, chronic abbreviator and overall annoyance Rachel Ray isn't staying home.
Again, tickets go on sale October 27 and can be purchase online at www.sobewineandfoodfest.com or by calling 1-877-762-3933.
