The Florida Restaurant and Lodging show was established in 1946 to promote and represent the restaurant trade. Today the FRLA encompasses the whole of the hospitality industry and is considered one of the most important sources of what’s new and what’s just around the corner – with over 450 leading suppliers to the industry bringing their knowledge and skills to the arena.
An exciting new feature of this year’s event is The Beer, Wine and Spirit Pavilion. For those wishing for closer access to the adult beverage element of hospitality there will be demonstrations, tastings and educational sessions from distributors and producers alike.

‘Learning to change the way the world eats‘ – That’s an ambitious challenge for anyone, but for students of the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, it’s all in a days study! JWU, a private non profit university has a unique vision of hands on education with a real world application. Integral to the study of culinary arts of course is wine, and food and wine pairing. For this reason JWU have introduced into the classroom an Enomatic Elite 2.5 8 bottle dispenser.
Being able to taste a variety of wines from many different regions and countries as well as different price points is a distinct and vital ingredient to the success of any future sommelier or chef. Preserving the miriad individual characteristics and subtleties of each wine is also important for successful food pairing, as of course is serving wine at precise temperatures. Enomatic’s pioneering technology effortlessly combines style and performance and will hopefully become an indespensible addition to the culinary classroom.

What do you get if you cross traditional Cajun cuisine with fine dining? According to Lake Charles chef and entrepreneur Andrew Green you get the brand new 1910 Restaurant! Named for the great 1910 fire, the vision for his ‘wine bar and fine dining restaurant’ is a fusion of the best of both of these worlds given a new twist of Green’s own originality. Green hopes that 1910 will put Lake Charles firmly on the culinary map following in the footsteps of LA’s renowned food hotspots, Lafayette and of course, New Orleans.
The Lake Charles native has certainly done his homework and one thing he has learned is that generally, customers prefer to drink wine by the glass. There will be a strong focus on pairing wine with his locally inspired dishes. With this in mind, 1910 has installed two Enomatic Elite 2.5 8 bottle dispensers behind the bar. The dispensers take pride of place and offer diners the opportunity to sample a range of up to 16 wines.
Doors are now open so go along to 1910 and enjoy some Lake Charles hospitality, fusion dining and a glass or two of perfectly poured wine from Andrew Green and of course, Enomatic!
