February 26, 2013
Another frenzied South Beach Wine & Food Festival has come and gone, leaving behind memories of crackling grills, world-class cocktails, and celebrity-fueled fêtes. The annual festival powered by Lee Brian Schrager and the Food Network kicked off last Thursday, with Moët Hennessy's The Q hosted by Paula Deen and sons, followed by The Q After Dark with special guest Curtis Stone. Today show hosts Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie stopped by the barbecue event to support participating cook and fellow host Al Roker before filming a segment for Today at Loews Miami Beach Hotel on Friday morning. And speaking of Friday, that’s when Rachael Ray hosted the Amstel Light Burger Bash, where Bobby Flay finally dethroned four-time consecutive winner Michael Symon as the People's Choice champion.
