Gluttony at it's best: Behind the Curtain at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival Miami Beach

~ Behind the Curtain at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival~

The movers and shakers, the powers that be and me... Inside all the chefs where still prepping, still organizing, up until the final seconds...Then the first of the doors opened then 4 doors opened, then 8 doors opened in the middle resessed in the ceter of the grand ballroom was the softest voice that greeted everyone joining in with a welcomed sound of a piano playing in the back round..

The mood was set by the pianist as he stroked the keys lightly enough to complement mood and low enough to hear bottles popping and chinging of glass's coming together. As freely as the wine flowed the aroma of sweet and savory, spice and citrus quickly took over the air ... This is South Beach Food and Wine Event Best of the Best at Fontainebleau hotel.
