We found the following free events as part of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, which runs Feb. 22-26, in various locations throughout Miami.
A Conversation & Book Signing with Martha Stewart: A household name in lifestyle, Martha Stewart is an Emmy Award-winning television show host, wildly successful entrepreneur, bestselling author, and trusted expert whose brand reaches approximately 100 million consumers across all media and merchandising platforms each month. She’s sitting down with Sam Sifton, food editor for The New York Times, to discuss ABC-theme information/topic. Hear straight from the leading lady of lifestyle herself how she has built her empire into one of the most recognizable brands in America, her thoughts on the current state of the hospitality industry and what’s in store for the next generation of leaders. Stick around after the conversation to pick up your copy of her latest book, Martha Stewart’s Vegetables: Inspired Recipes and Tips for Choosing, Cooking, and Enjoying the Freshest Seasonal Flavors (Clarkson Potter, September 2016), from Books & Books and get it signed.
RSVP. 5-6 pm on Feb. 24 at Books & Books in the Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33154.
Celebrity Chef Conversation & Book Signing with Gabrielle Hamilton: Gabrielle Hamilton is the James Beard Award-winning chef/owner of New York City’s East Village hotspot PRUNE, and author of Prune (Random House, November 2014) and The New York Times’ bestselling memoir Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef (Random House, March 2011). While her stage at PRUNE may only be the size of a small classroom, her infectious smile and culinary mastery reach far beyond the 30 diners that visit for brunch, lunch and dinner. She’ll sit down with The New York Times’ food editor Sam Sifton to chat about ABC-theme information/topic to share her experiences first-hand. Stick around after the conversation to pick up your copy of her bestselling memoir from Books & Books and get it signed.
