Past guests have included the likes of Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, Robert Irvine and many more.

SouthBeach makes the perfect backdrop for this occasion, with its crisp ocean breezes, stunning beaches, and wide selection of world-class dining venues, many of which will be catering to participants. With the last two years in particular breaking records for attendance, 2015 is sure to be the most exciting yet, with an estimated 65,000 expected.

There will be over 60 events to choose from throughout the four-day period, including seminars, private dinners, late-night parties, tastings, and more. Some highlights to consider include the Oyster Bash, which pairs various seafood delicacies with fabulous wins; The Amstel Light Burger Bash, a Rachel Ray-hosted contest between 25 of the nation’s top burger specialists; and the Whole Foods Market grand Tasting Village, which offers a little bit of everything right on the beach.

There are multiple brunch events to choose from, hosted by top Food Network stars, like Table Brunch hosted by Geoffrey Zakarian and the Southern Kitchen Brunch hosted by Trisha Yearwood. All of your favorite chefs and culinary personalities will have their own 45-minute segments on the KitchenAid Culinary Demonstration stage, followed by cookbook selling and autograph signing.

Whether you are a foodie or just looking for a little something different to spice up your palette, South Beach Wine & Food is sure to delight. If you are looking for a Miami Beach Hotel to book your stay for this four-day occasion, none will serve you better than the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach!
