Chefs converge at the FN Lounge at the W

Kick off time! On Wednesday evening, Food Network Magazine editor Peggy Mansfield cohosted the Miami Lounge at The Dutch at W South Beach to start the South Beach Wine & Food Festival right.

Guests mingled with the culinary themed cable channel’s biggest stars, Anne Burrell, Sunny Anderson and Jeff Mauro.

On the menu: specialty cocktails as well as hors d’oeuvres and desserts inspired by the magazine’s March bacon-themed issue. Think: Salty, smoky and sweet.
