Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village – Review

Published

on

Food and Drinks Rain Down on Miami Beach Once Again for Blockbuster Event.

February 26th, 2022

While it’s just one of several events for the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®), Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village always sits year after year toward the top of can’t miss ones. This year was no different as acclaimed chefs were front-and-center doing cooking demonstrations and judging their top pick for the seemingly countless vendors. The event stretched out beachside over three acres with a fantasyland of libations and savory dishes. Some of the chefs on hand included: Emeril Lagasse, Geoffrey Zakarian, Rocco DiSpirito, Marc Murphy, Ming Tsai, Duff Goldman, Kardea Brown, Andrew ZimmernAlex Guarnaschelli, Michael Symon, Scott Conant, JJ Johnson and a cooking pairing of Amanda Freitag & Katie Button.

Beyond wining and dining, plus watching the celebrity chefs cooking demonstrations, The David Grutman Experience returned with plenty of tunes to get the crowd burning off a few of the day’s calories. The event was just a great vibe overall once again, yet with an ocean breeze, full bellies and the ability to just kind let loose, it’s really no wonder why this is one of Miami’s signature events.

For more information visit sobewff.org. Stay up to date all year long by following along with the #SOBEWFF hashtag on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

To date, the Festival has raised more than $34 million in support of its educational mission to cultivate future leaders of the hospitality industry at the Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at Florida International University (FIU). Between SOBEWFF® and its sister NYCWFF, more than $48 million has been raised to benefit the respective charities of each Festival. Beyond the funds raised, both Festivals draw attention to the diverse dining cultures of their respective cities, provide economic stimulus in their communities, and serve as a platform to drive awareness and engagement for a wide array of philanthropic activities.
