America’s beloved queen of Italian cuisine is headed back to the sands of South Beach to kick-off the Festival weekend once again! Giada De Laurentiis is an Emmy Award-winning television personality best known for her hit shows on Food Network, a New York Times’ bestselling author and flourishing restaurateur who is joining us at the Festival once again to share a dose of la bella vita on the beach alongside more than 30 of the nation’s greatest chefs serving up dishes originating from various regions of Italy. Guests can peruse Piedmont, trot through Tuscany, savor Sardinia, canvas Campania, saunter through Sicily, and more - while sinking their toes into the sparkling white sands of South Beach. Grab your friends and gather ‘round under our signature white tents in the sand for a grand Italian feast, all paired perfectly with wines and refreshing libations from the Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits portfolio.
