We received the following alert, and had to share our love for local chef Michelle Bernstein, and our favorite flip flops, Havaianas!
If you're able to swing by the Food and Wine Burger Bash, pick up a pair of these cute foodie friendly sandals!
We are also very lucky to receive a free pair of these as well :)

Havaianas Teams up with Miami’s Favorite Chef, Michelle Bernstein
to add Brazilian Spice to the 2013 Food & Wine Burger Bash

Havaianas, the world’s most stylish flip flop, has partnered with James Beard Award winning chef and Miami native, Michelle Bernstein to bring “Instant Brazilian Joy” to the 2013 Food & Wine Burger Bash in Miami.

To celebrate this partnership, Havaianas has created a limited edition collection of Food & Wine pins that will be available on-site at Burger Bash and on the Havaianas website from February 21st - February 24th.  These whimsical pins feature snacks and cooking items such as pasta, cracked eggs, burgers, fries, ice-cream, pickles, ketchup and more.


Bernstein infused her famous Latin culinary style with the deeply rooted Brazilian heritage of Havaianas to create an eclectic menu of recipes inspired by this exclusive collection of flip flop styles and pins. The authentic delicacies such as Bolo de Maracujá (Passion Fruit Cake) with purple sandals and the ice cream pin, The Brazilian Burger with red sandals and the burger pin, or Moqueca with gold flip flops with the fish pin, and more will be available for each guest to order complimentary a la carte at the event. Bernstein will be on-site at the Havaianas booth at the Burger Bash to “serve up” her delectably named sandals and exclusive recipe cards featuring her real gourmet creations.

For the foodies who cannot make it to Burger Bash this year, Michelle’s flip flop creations and her custom sandal, The Meal (gold flip flop with ketchup, burger, pickle and fries pin) will be available for sale on www.us.havaianas.com for $2.50 each pin for the duration of the SOBE Food & Wine Festival.

Inspired by a shared passion for comfort and luxury, a collaboration between Havaianas and Bernstein was a natural fit. Bernstein explains, “I’m a true Miami native, so whenever I’m not in the kitchen, I’m wearing my Havaianas.”
