Here’s the news release:

Miami Beach, Florida (August 2010) –  Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival Founder and Executive Director Lee Brian Schrager is pleased to announce that the FOOD NETWORK SOUTH BEACH WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL COOKBOOK ($35.00/hardcover) will be released on November 16th, 2010.  Published by lifestyle, cookbook and gift book powerhouse Clarkson Potter, the book features an array of recipes from the nation’s favorite celebrity chefs and culinary personalities and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the chefs, events and food that makes the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival the most prestigious gourmet gathering in America.

“This book was developed to commemorate the 10th year of the Festival, which we will celebrate in February 2011,” said author and Festival Founder Lee Brian Schrager, who also serves as Vice President of Corporate Communications & National Events at Southern Wine & Spirits of America, which hosts the Festival.  “It is truly a tribute to the high caliber of culinary talent, winemakers, staff, and students who have donated their time and participated in the Festival for the past 10 years.” 

Fan-favorites like Food Network’s Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, and Bobby Flay, as well as over 30 James Beard award-winning chefs including Daniel Boulud, Tom Colicchio, Alain Ducasse, Emeril Lagasse and more, all come together for this one-of-a-kind cookbook.   Like the overall Festival, all proceeds from the cookbook will benefit the Florida International University (FIU) School of Hospitality and Tourism Management and the Southern Wine & Spirits Beverage Management Center located on FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus.  

The book begins with an unforgettable commentary, disguised as a foreword, from Anthony Bourdain.  What follows is an insider’s look at the kitchens, tents, private parties, and events that cause foodies and aficionados from all over the globe to flock to sunny South Beach for four days every February.  The recipes, arranged by Drinks, Starters & Small Plates, Barbeque, Burgers, Comfort Food, Main Courses, and Desserts, are all accented by the personal stories and memories from the Festival’s all-star cast of chefs and culinary icons.     

Mark your calendars: Dates for the Festival’s 10th Anniversary are set for Thursday, February 24 through Sunday, February 27, 2011.  Tickets for the Festival go on-sale Monday, October 25th, 2010 and returning Festival favorites and new programming is in the works.  Keep up to date all year long via www.twitter.com/Lee_Schrager.
