2008 Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival

It’s coming. The 2008 South Beach Wine & Food Festival – Food Network’s Celebrity Chef’s will be there…The Travel Channel’s Anthony Bourdain will be there…will you be there?

2008 Food Network’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival

February 21 – 24 2008
Miami Beach, Florida

I am a bit curious to the changing name…Food Network’s South Beach WINE & Food Festival – the emphasis on alcohol over gastronomical delights leads to a pause when you note that Food & Wine magazine is a presenter.

But enough of trivialities, it is sure to be a Bacchanal Bash for one and all.

No Reservations vs. No Reservations

I love Anthony Bourdain. I love Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Upon first hearing of the movie No Reservations, I had grand dreams of them co-hosting/co-staring in a feature length episode of Bourdain’s hour long cooking/travel/history show of the same title (aired 10PM ET, Mondays on the Travel Channel). Alas, no such luck.

Anthony Bourdain: What is a “chef”?

I love Anthony Bourdain. He dances with words, darting them to hit your palate, your gut, and your heart. He travels the world, he eats, he writes about it. He has a sense of humor and a glint in his eye. What does he think of his profession? Find out here: Anthony Bourdain: What is a “chef”?

Key Lime Pie: On A Stick

IF you love those little yellow-green orbs that hail from Mile 0 (Key West) | IF you love that tart & creamy heavenly pie that is keylime | IF you don’t have your own personal jet to get to the Florida Keys…

Bring the Pie to You:

My personal favorite is Kermit’s Key Lime Shoppe their collection includes Frozen Key Lime Pie Dipped in Chocolate On A Stick: 24 bars at $169.95 is $7.08 per bar, a good $2.22 less than the Blond Giraffe’s $9.30 per bar (30 for $279.00).

Glad’s Steamiest Chef

You know, the Brawny man and Mr. Clean are two guys who show the rest of mankind that it’s okay to clean. The following men apparently are competing in Glad’s Steamiest Chef contest for a chance to show mankind it’s okay to…steam?

Although clever, I do not believe a “steamy” celebrity chef is going to entice me into buying Glad’s SimplyCooking: Microwave Steaming Bags.

But, I may be inclined to vote
