Live it up with European royalty, or just dissolute celeb chefs, at this year's biggest food events

The St. Pete Times has a great rundown of Florida's biggest wine and food events coming up in 2009. Writes John Bancroft:

Two of Europe's remaining crowned heads, a platoon of celebrity chefs and a gaggle of gregarious winemakers headline food and wine festivals from Safety Harbor to Miami's South Beach in the coming months.

Yep, their majesties King Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain will be slumming it with the likes of Paula Deen and Anthony Bourdain at the Food Network South Beach Food & Wine Festival next month. Maybe the $1,000 price tage for their shindig means that "slumming it" isn't terribly apt. Royalty!
