 Shanea Savours: Made in Italy Gourmet (Wynwood)

The brainchild of native Italians Pietro Monelli and Francesco Belcaro, Made in Italy Gourmet is a restaurant, wine bar and retail market with items such as oils, sauces, pasta, and Italian artisanal products. There is also an Italian wine library with over 2,000 bottles in all price ranges. And don’t forget the cheese and cured meat counter. Their motto: Taste, Live, Share. They really follow these ideals. The building, originally a large warehouse, was marvelously transformed into what I can only describe as a scene out of a Tuscan village...

 Duck Duck Goose Wows in Wynwood

Chefs, mixologists, philanthropists and other fowl-loving foodies gathered for the first ever Duck Duck Goose, created by Jeremiah Bullfrog, chef/owner of gastroPod Miami and mastermind behind the popular PIG (Pork is Good) event. Bullfrog and his cadre of 12 knife-slingers showed off their creativity and skill with locally raised and pastured fowl, and included a lineup of South Florida culinary stars. The event, attended heavily by local restaurant and bar industry honchos, raised funds to benefit The Epilepsy Foundation of Florida.
