BubbleQ on Miami Beach
Friday night we attended the BubbleQ, the 'informal' function of the South Beach Food and Wine Fest. This was held in a gigantic tent and had been sold out for months.
So much was delicious in our two hour tasting meander but the Best of Show was:
BBQ Brisket, Coleslaw and Beans by Mike Mills, author of 'Peace, Love and BBQ'
Lamb Chops with Apple/Onion Salsa on Lavach by Chef Allen of Miami
French Toast with Bacon Ice Cream was about the most innovative dish we tried.
Saw [and got pix of some]:
Host, Al Roker, Today Show
Tom Collicchio, Bravo TV 'Top Chef' Host
SHAQ from the Miami Heat
Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin, NYC and Honoree of Saturday's dinner
Lots of food and lots and lots of Champagne; Moet Chandon was one of the sponsors.
