Barney's Creative Director Simon Doonan and Wine & Food Festival honcho Lee Schrager gave The Feast a quick look at the 2010 Barneys holiday windows, officially being revealed at a party on November 16 to celebrate the release of Schrager's new cookbook,
South Beach Wine & Food Festival Cookbook.
The broad theme of the installations is "Have a Foodie Holiday." Four major tableaus feature The Bad Boys, such as Mario Batali and Bobby Flay; The Gals, from Lidia Bastianich to Rachael Ray; A Revolutionary Stew, for trailblazers like Jamie Oliver; and Miss Illy, an homage to illycafe.
