Good reads on food, drink and travel from around the web; locally in South Florida I read South Florida Daily Blog, just like the editor states on his site, he sifts through the news in the South Florida blogosphere [and aggregates it] so you don’t have to; this makes for an easy one-stop-shopping read. Other than South Florida Daily Blog, here are some food, drink and travel highlights of what I’ve read recently. Previous reads.

and for a great read, if you love the South Florida food scene? Check out our newly published book (Globe Pequot Press, $14.95), Food Lovers’ Guide to Miami & Fort Lauderdale
