South Beach extravaganza presents Best of the Best

Fontainebleau, Miami Beach---Tony Montuano of the iconic Chicago Gold Coast Italian restaurant Spiaggia was in an ebullient mood as he shaved mounds of fresh white truffles on a hand cut slice of his signature homemade pasta in the Grand Ballroom of Miami Beach's most luxurious resort for Wine Spectator's Best of the Best, one of the marquee events of the 14th Food Network and Cooking Channel South Beach Wine and Food Festival, presented by Food and Wine, which occurs February 19-22. Chicago's Rick Bayless, popular television personality, Top Chef Masters winner and chef/owner of Frontera Grill, also in that city's Gold Coast, offered up his signature takes on authentic Mexican cuisine.
