Cobaya SOBEWFF with Chefs Andrew Zimmern, Chris Cosentino, Michael Schwartz, Makoto Okuwa and Kaytlin Brakefield

Well, it finally happened: Cobaya goes SoBe. On Friday night, Cobaya teamed up with the South Beach Wine and Food Festival for a dinner – and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. A big thank you to Lee Schrager and his hard-working team at SoBeWFF, who really pushed to make this happen and do it right; to the Perez Art Museum Miami for letting us use their gorgeous facility for the dinner; to all of the chefs who participated – Chris Cosentino of San Francisco's Cockscomb and Boccalone, local hero Michael Schwartz of Michael's Genuine, Makoto Okuwa of Makoto in Bal Harbour, and Kaytlin Brakefield of Verde at PAMM, all of their crews and the folks from FIU's Chaplin School of Hospitality who helped out, with a special thank you to chef, host, and curator Andrew Zimmern; and as always most of all, to the guinea pigs (some old, many new this time) whose interest and support have enabled us to put on 49 of these events over the past 5+ years.

You can read recaps of the dinner at Food For Thought and The Chowfather, see pictures in this SOBEWFF Cobaya Dinner flickr set or Chowfather's instagram feed, plus there's more pictures on the SoBeWFF website. Here's the menu:
