Where To Go at This Weekend’s SOBE Wine and Food Festival 2012

By admin | February 24, 2012


The SOBE Wine and Food Festival is current underway, down in Florida’s Miami Beach area. Supported by sponsorships from The Food Network, Food and Wine Magazine, and American Express, among other companies, this four-day event (Thursday through Sunday, February 23-26) promises to be a gastronomical extravaganza, catering to culinary enthusiasts and wine connoisseurs alike. While many events, such as The Flavors of Flay presented by Certified Angus Beef–a thorough sampling of Chef Bobby Flay’s restaurant empire–are sold out, you can still score tickets to numerous SOBE Wine and Food festival events.

So if you live in South Florida and want a last-minute weekend activity, or if you are willing to do the necessary travel at the drop of the hat, consider one or several of these attractions. Read More


Weekly Dish Recommendation: Scallops at Dada

By mahir | November 30, 2010

This week I just have to commend Dada in Delray Beach, Florida on their perfectly executed scallops.  The welcoming restaurant is located in a suburban home only a few blocks from the Atlantic Avenue main strip.  Seating is scattered throughout the rooms of the house, as well as on the adorned patio.   Read More


Food & People from around the World!

By mahir | September 2, 2010

This week’s photos of Food & People were taken by Sheryl Estrada in Florida, USA. Below is what Sheryl has to say about the photos and her experience of Florida, USA.

Each Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon there’s a farmer’s market in Fort Pierce, a South Florida city, which is a part of Florida’s Treasure Coast. Many Spanish galleons wrecked off of the coast, including those of the 1715 Spanish fleet, leaving behind treasures that have been recovered in the past 50 years — thus the name. I’ve never found any gold sparkling in the waters, but for me, this farmer’s market is gold. I find it unique, as it not only offers fresh fruit and vegetables, but atmosphere. There’s always a band performing, sometimes causing visitors to dance while sipping a smoothie or eating a kettle corn; the food vendors are varied. Set adjacent to the Indian River Lagoon, you get a nice view. It’s also in Historic Downtown Fort Pierce, where you can see an old-fashioned building or two. A mix of locals and vacationers, you’ll hear a Boston accent one minute, the next, a Southern accent. Everyone is upbeat, experiencing what markets used to be before they became “super.”

Thank you Sheryl for your contribution!
