The Countdown Begins for The Ninth Annual Boca Bacchanal!

The countdown begins for one of my favorite wine & food events of the year! The Ninth Annual Boca Bacchanal will take place March 18-20th and is a fabulous, weekend long affair that features some of the world's most renowned Chefs and Vintners showcased in three very unique events. This year has special significance for me and my husband Steve since we are chairing The Bacchanal and Auction on Saturday, March 19th. Needless to say, we are very excited!

The theme of this year's event is "The Era of the Mango Gang Chefs" and will feature many of the original members of  The Mango Gang, an elite group of innovative chefs who who created South Florida’s distinctive regional cuisine during the 1980’s, bringing an international spotlight to our area. This year's featured Chefs are Allen Susser (Chef Allen's, Aventura, FL), Mark Militello (formerly of Trina, Ft.

The weekend-long event that benefits the Boca Raton Historical Society kicks off Friday night with Vintner Dinners featuring decadent and delicious meals created by our Chefs and Vintners in some of Boca Raton's most spectacular private residences. Saturday evening is the fabulous and festive Bacchanal and Auction where revelers descend on The Boca Raton Resort and Club for an evening of sipping, savoring and bidding in one of the country's Top 20 Premier Live Auctions according to Wine Spectator. Sunday is the Grand Tasting, an alfresco affair held at the Mizner Park Amphitheatre where attendees can stroll and sample dishes from 30 top local restaurants and 140 featured wines.

I will be featuring wines from some of this years Vintners at the Museum of Art Ft. Lauderdale this Thursday evening, February 24th at another installment of our "Art of Food and Wine" Series.  This month's theme is Wines of the Winter Season: Hearty Wines That Will Warm You Up – Paired With Your Favorite Comfort Foods!
