The Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s third annual Line, Vine & Dine fishing tournament and seafood cook-off will return on Feb. 7-9 to the iconic Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina in Fort Lauderdale.
As much of a world-class sporting event as it is a culinary event, Line, Vine & Dine will feature a two-day charity fishing tournament where teams will compete in the billfish division. Events throughout the weekend include a Champagne & Ceviche welcome reception featuring G.H. Mumm, dockside weigh-in celebration hosted by Chef Emeril Lagasse & Chef Rick Moonen, wine tastings, live music and a fashion show presented by Neiman Marcus. The weekend concludes with the Vine & Dine Seafood Cook-Off, featuring cuisine prepared by participating chefs and paired with wine from some of Napa’s and Sonoma’s best winemakers.
Guest chefs Sean Brasel, Angelo Elia, Habteabe Hamde, Cindy Hutson, José Mendin and Greg McGowan, will join Emeril Lagasse for a seafood showdown that highlights the very best of coastal cuisine.
Proceeds will benefit the Emeril Lagasse Foundation in support of local charities Arc Culinary and Dan Marino Foundation-Marino Campus. Both organizations are dedicated to providing culinary and hospitality training to young people with developmental disorders and other life challenges. Last year’s event weekend raised over $800,000 for local beneficiaries.
