South Beach Food & Wine comes back to Miami for the 16th year in a row.

One of the biggest food and drink celebrations is coming to Miami for its 16th year running: The Food Network and Cooking Channel’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival. The festival features dozens of cooking demos, tastings, classes, and dinners with some of the world’s most renowned chefs and food personalities. Tickets are on sale for the Feb. 22–26 nearly week-long feast, and we have a list of culinary highlights to dip your forks into.

Some of the most popular events are making a return, and may seem familiar to New York City Wine & Food Festival attendees, including the Burger Bash and the Tacos and Tequila with Aarón Sánchez. The new events this year include:
