The South Beach Wine and Food Festival (name-sponsored by The Food Network since 2007) has been a popular Miami event for ten years. To celebrate this milestone, festival founder and organizer Lee Brian Schrager co-authored this cookbook with the help of food writer Julie Mautner, and what a book it is! More than a mere collection of recipes, Mr. Schrager's book captures the carnival-like atmosphere of this celebration of chefs and the food that they prepare.

The Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook contains the following:

* A rather self-involved foreword by Anthony Bourdain in which he uses the entire second paragraph to recount the riches of his first "swag bag" of freebies which are given to celebrity participants.

* Introductions to the book and each chapter by Mr. Schrager which includes some charming stories about the founding of the festival as well as it's highlights and lowlights (including the sudden, unexpected rainstorm that ruined the 2006 Barbeque and Champange event known as the BubbleQ.)

* Short interviews with chefs and other luminaries such as Francis Ford Coppola, Rocco DiSpirito, Charlie Trotter and Alain Ducasse entitled "Grilled for One Minute" where they are asked questions such as "What do you eat or drink when no one is watching?"

* One page listings of wine-pairings such as "The Best Wines for Burgers" and "The Best Wines for Barbecue".

* Candid photographs taken at past SoBe Festivals.

All of this really gives the reader a feel for this "Summer Camp for Chefs".

So I bought the book and I have to say the recipes all looked mouth watering. I tried one and it was more involved then I usually attempt but it turned out quite nice. Now if only I could find someone to make all the other delicious sounding recipes for me! In the meantime - it is a nice coffee table book and I have had people pick it up and copy recipes from it so a worthwhile purchase.
