Latin Taste Fest
As a celebration of Latin culture and cuisine, the first annual Latin Taste Fest brings together an all-star line-up of Miami’s most renowned restaurateurs for a six-hour food and wine tasting event. Chefs from restaurants such as Brother Jimmy’s BBQ and Divino Ceviche man booth after booth, handing out unlimited samples. Throughout the festival, noted chefs, sommeliers, and mixologists put on a slew of seminars, and VIP amenities kick the culinary adventures up a notch with a private lounge full of casino tables, cocktails, and scratch-n-sniff appetizers.
The festival also gives revelers a taste of non-edible culture. An on-site gallery champions the work of local artists, and live entertainment includes Aymée Nuviola, a Latin singer-songwriter who has performed with Gloria Gaynor and Johnny Ventura. A portion of ticket sales and any excess food will go to help Feeding South Florida, an organization that gives food to hungry families, the working poor, homeless, and victims of domestic violence or natural disasters.
