My Top Three Picks from the 2013 SOBEWFF’s Whole Foods Grand Tasting Village Weekend

May 6, 2013

Well helloooooo! I’ve been interning at a PR agency for the past couple months so I’ve been crazy busy! But I realized I never wrote about my experience at the 2013 South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF). I wrote a post about some cool free events from SOBEWFF, but never recapped my time at festival.

Like I’ve said in previous entries, I worked as a press and media associate in the festival last year and had a great time. But this year, I was so stoked to actually go as a guest to both days of the Whole Foods Grand Tasting Village and enjoy all the celebrity demonstrations and yummy food!

So what were my favorite parts of the SOBEWFF this year? Here are my top three memories of the Whole Foods Grand Tasting Village:

My Experience at the 2012 South Beach Wine and Food Festival!

March 7, 2012

I recently had the pleasure of working at the 2012 South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) here in Miami! I was a press and media associate thanks to my school, Florida International University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Read on for my reflection of the event!

I had always wanted to participate at a South Beach Wine and Food Festival (SOBEWFF) ever since I’d heard of the exciting demonstrations and chefs that attended this event. When I found out the FIU School of Journalism and Mass Communication (SJMC) would be hiring students this year to help with the festival, I was ecstatic to sign up and participate in this year’s festivities.

I worked as a press and media associate for two events: “Flavors of Flay with Bobby Flay” and “Trucks on The Beach, the Official Festival Closing Party hosted by Andrew Zimmern.” Being that I am a foodie and I always have the Food Network channel on, I instantly recognized these celebrity chefs and couldn’t wait to work these events.
