Emeril Live from the South Beach Wine and Food Festival!
Posted by MSLO Blogger
Hope you enjoyed the show today -- here's a peek behind the scenes! Keep checking back here for party photos from the Burger Bash, Bubble Q, and more at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.
1 Emeril with South Beach Wine & Food Festival Founder Lee Schrager.
2 Norman Van Aken, who took a road trip to Key West as a young man, fell in love with Florida and its local ingredients "like you fall in love with a girl," and the rest is culinary history.
3 Chris Lilly from Big Bob Gibson's BBQ. We grilled him about his signature white BBQ sauce -- it's vinegar and mayonnaise based, with horseradish, salt, pepper, and...the rest of the award-winning blend is his secret!
4 Chef Tim Love from Lonesome Dove Bistro in Fort Worth, Texas.
5 Tony Neely from Neelys BBQ in Memphis and Nashville, who copped to having a "man crush" on Chef Emeril. This was after only one margarita, mind you, so watch out at the Bubble Q!
6 Chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo from Animal. Their menu is meat-centric, we're talking pig ears, foie gras, and even spam.
7 The Beast gals - Chef Naomi Pomeroy in the foreground and Sous Chef Mika Paredes.
