By Lynn Jones – This year’s South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) lit up Miami’s South Beach for a weekend of foodie influencers, celebrity chefs and iconic Food Network star demos. For more than 15 years Sobewff has held court with their signature tent on the beach featuring specialty cocktails, creative cuisine and the opportunity to support culinary hospitality and education at Florida International University. The girlfriends weekend schedule of events included: ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives LIVE,’ hosted by Guy Fieri; ‘Tacos & Tequila,’ hosted by Aarón Sánchez and a hospitality suite meet and greet with New York restaurateur Melba Wilson owner of Melbas Southern Classic Restaurant.

The Eden Roc hotel was the location for ‘The Cookout,’ hosted by Chef JJ Johnson and radio host/actress/podcaster Angela Yee. Chef JJ cookout was a winner with spotlighting African American soul food dishes representing black culture historical dishes and cooking techniques.  Chefs on the scene grilled up Angus beef burgers, fried fish and lip smacking sweet potato balls!

SOBEWFF concluded their four-day festival with 105 events; 500 hundred culinary exerts, with a total of 37 million raised to date benefiting FIU’s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management.
