From Miami Spice to Tastemakers (Delray Beach and Boca Raton incarnations) to New Times' very own Pairings event coming up on September 13, foodcentric events are certainly nothing new to South Florida. After all, what is a social event without food, so why not center the whole thing around food from the get-go?
The near omnipresence of food events means we never think about how these things got started in the first place. Perhaps you think that your city tourism boards or chambers of congress are organizing these events to sponsor local businesses and foster fine dining for the locals? Sometimes. Other times, it's more like a foodie fairy godmother shows up and waves her magic wand.
