On Sunday evening in the courtyard of the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, there were more than 19 stations serving caja china roast pork, mojitos, and wine. A live band took the stage, and songs such as Rosario's "Meneito" filled the air. As the night wore on, a light drizzle fell upon SoBeWFF's Swine & Wine, hosted by James Beard Award-winning chef Michelle Bernstein and sponsored by Goya Foods. But few attendants noticed the weather. There was too much pork and too much booze to be had.
So, if you missed this fiesta, here are some highlights.

Two local chefs love pairing pork with broth. Both Doug Rodriguez and Michelle Bernstein opted for liquid accompaniments to their pork-centric creations. Rodriguez provided attendees with a clam dipping broth alongside his smoked pan con lechón. Bernstein served her pulled lechón asado with Vietnamese noodle salad and a teeny cup holding pork dashi.
