If you attended any of the many South Beach Wine & Food Festival events, you’re likely still full — or hung over. The annual culinary shindig, in its 15th year, was quite the blowout as always, attracting celebrities from all walks of fame. A few highlights:
▪ Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen and husband John Legend joined South Florida phenomenon Fireman Derek, aka Derek Kaplan, firefighter and pie maker, for a midnight breakfast at the National Hotel. Giada De Laurentiis and rumored beau, TV producer Shane Farley, made an appearance despite rumors that had De Laurentiis “flirting madly,” says a source, “with Bobby Flay.”
Never miss a local story.
▪ Famed ex-Miami sugarsmith Hedy Goldsmith was back in South Beach at Sweet 15, a dessert party hosted at the former Versace mansion by Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman.
▪ YogArt Buddha & Bellinis at The Raleigh’s beachfront courtyard was less wine-and-food and more sweat-and-controlled-breathing, as New York DJ Hannah Bronfman orchestrated an hourlong yoga session.
▪ Country singer-turned-Food Network show host Trisha Yearwood took a break from her world tour with husband Garth Brooks, flying in from Massachusetts to host a sprawling Southern Kitchen brunch in a ballroom overlooking the beach at the Loews Hotel. She charmed the crowd with selfies and hit songs, including Walkaway Joe, Wrong Side of Memphis and PrizeFighter.
