5 Recipes From the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival

Just because you can’t make it down to South Beach doesn’t mean you can’t pretend

If you can't enjoy Barilla's penne with arugula pesto this weekend at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, make it at home instead.

Some of us are lucky enough to head down to the 12th annual Food Network Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine down in South Beach this coming weekend, and some of us are not. If you’re part of the latter group, all hope is not lost, because we have some insider bites from the sponsors of this year’s festival.

At Sunday’s Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village, culinary rock stars such as Curtis Stone, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Masaharu Morimoto will join KitchenAid and Barilla pastas in demonstrations whipping up a spectrum of delicious dishes, and we’ve got the recipes.

From Barilla, you’ll find classic Italian pasta dishes like a porkified-amatriciana and spicy arugula pesto, and KitchenAid will show what they do best with baked goods like a lemon roll cake and chocolate and peanut torte.

So just because you can’t throw on your bathing suit this weekend and join in on one of America’s prestigious gourmet gatherings doesn’t mean you can’t pretend you’re there joining in on all of the eating-action. Whip up these exclusive recipes from the festival and let your imagination go to work.
