Lee Brian Schrager, Founder and Director of the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine magazine, announced today that multi-media lifestyle entrepreneur, Martha Stewart, will receive the Festival's Lifetime Achievement Award.

On Sunday, February 25, at the Festival's Tribute Brunch, Stewart will be honored for being a visionary in the multi-media lifestyle arena. The Festival will also pay tribute to world renowned winemakers Robert and Peter Mondavi with the Southern Wine & Spirits of America Lifetime Achievement Award and Florida International University will also recognize a soon-to-be named honoree with the Michael E. Hurst Distinguished Hospitality Leaders Award.

"We are thrilled and honored to be welcoming a true pioneer in the world of cooking, decorating and entertaining," said Schrager. "Martha Stewart is the ultimate lifestyle guru. We are elated that she has taken time out from her busy schedule to join us on the beach for the sixth year of the festival."

Oh, she's a pioneer alright.


Last year they honored culinary legend Maida Heatter and Baron Eric de Rothschild. No offense to Martha - after all, she has expertly browbeat people with a condescending brand that enforces the idea that everything you're now enjoying is somehow pedestrian and third-class compared to her tastes - but she's not worthy to hold their culinary jock straps.

Where is Spy magazine when we need its nuclear-hot radioactive satiric surface-to-Martha missiles most?

Which reminds me, I never completed my Martha Stewart paper doll.
