SOBE WINE AND FOOD FESTIVAL
Eggwhites Catering has participated in SOBEWFF since its inception and we are delighted to again be featured at the Grand Tasting Village with other talented Miami chefs that locals love and respect. You can count on an abundance of delectable treats from more than 50 featured restaurants from all over South Florida. Eggwhites Special Event Catering is proud to be part of the thriving North Miami/Sunny Isles/Aventura neighborhood in the Grand Tasting Village. A seemingly endless selection of carefully crafted cocktails, wines, beer and spirits will be available throughout the Village to pair with all the small dishes and delights.
OUR SIGNATURE DISH FOR SOBE FOOD AND WINE 2019
Catch Chef Gary Lampner and Eggwhites Catering dishing up signature treats on Saturday, February 23 from 12noon – 5pm alongside many of South Florida’s top chefs and restauranteurs. This year we will be showcasing Gazpacho with a twist. Our Dark Rum Spiked Gazpacho with Mango and Island Spiced Shrimp is the perfect small bite to enjoy while soaking up the Miami sunshine and easy ocean breezes. Gazpacho is a wonderfully refreshing dish in hot weather. Originating among rural workers in Andalusia, Gazpacho was traditionally made with leftover bread pounded and softened in water, olive oil and whatever other ingredients happened to be on hand. Regional variations include almonds, lemon juice, egg whites, hot peppers and green beans, to name a few. Our variation includes the addition of Island Spiced Shrimp which we think is the perfect complement to our flavor profile and theme! A dash of Dark Rum spirit from the tropics to finish the dish will surely be a crowd-pleaser.
AMERICA'S FAVORITE GOURMET GATHERING

The fan-favorite Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village features samplings from more than 50 restaurants each day, seemingly endless pours of wines and spirits and more!!
EXPERT TIP: DON'T FORGET TO HYDRATE!! Think of this weekend as if it were a marathon rather than a sprint. Pace yourself and drink plenty of H2O along the way.
NEW SOBE FOOD AND WINE 2019 EVENTS
The SOBE Wine and Food Festival is the brainchild of Lee Brian Schrager, festival founder and director, who also serves as a Vice President at Southern Wine & Spirits. The festival has established itself as a favorite among chefs and industry professionals alike. As one of Miami’s most anticipated events for both locals and visitors, the food and wine festival continues to raise the bar year after year with new events and offerings.
Some of the new events will surely transport you to the countries and regions that are at the heart of Miami’s food culture. José Andres will be hosting Tastes of Puerto Rico at the SLS Hotel. Tacos After Dark will be hosted by Michael Symon at the Loews. A SOBE food and wine extravaganza would not be complete without an Oyster Bash, hosted by Josh Capon of Lure Fishbar. And finally, the queen of entertaining, Martha Stewart, will be holding court for a wine and cheese party at No. 3 Social Roof Bar & Lounge.
