PHOTO GALLERY: SOBEWFF Southern Kitchen Brunch

The past two years we’ve enjoyed the all-day gluttony of the SOBEWFF Grand Tasting Village. But this year we decided to switch things up and opted to spend Sunday morning with country queen Trisha Yearwood at the Loews Miami Beach hotel. We not only filled up on delish southern eats and bourbon Bloody Marys, but we also got to watch the Grammy Award-winning singer perform a few songs! Here are our favorite bites of the day.
