Miami Beach, FL – February 25, 2016 – South Beach Wine & Food Festival kicked off their 15th anniversary with longtime friend Giada De Laurentiis as she hosted the Barilla’s Italian Bites on the Beach. Giada brought a taste of signature Italian taste to the sands of South Beach behind the iconic Delano. Whether it was a traditional spaghetti and meatballs or a cooler antipasto-style pasta salad or a savory perciatelli and chicken, this is a celebration had everyones mouths watering. Guests were also able to check out some stunning new rides courtesy of The Collection.
