The 12th annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival wrapped up on Sunday after a truffle- and cocktail-fueled weekend of celebrity chef appearances, parties, tastings and seminars.
Taking a seat at the Coral Gables Country Club, surrounded by a sea of Miami's social set swanning about in its finest footwear, we realized luncheon season is back in full force.
We never did quite catch why February is National Sweet Potato Month, but, when the occasion lent itself to a full-on feast at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar honoring the Ipomoea batatas, we were not one to ask questions.
