It’s almost that time of year again…Miami Spice is right around the corner! Luckily for us, we can take advantage of even more foodie fun with the Mastercard Priceless Miami pre-sale tomorrow for tickets to the Miami New Times Iron Fork competition that’s kicking off Miami Spice this year!
We foodies in Miami look forward to Miami Spice all year long, hoping that some of our favorite restaurants will be one of the 200+ to participate! Restaurants participating in Miami Spice offer discounted, fixed price menus on some of their most popular menu items and it’s a great way to sample the best that our Miami restaurants have to offer without totally breaking the bank!
I’m hoping that one of my new favorite restaurants, Crave, in Merrick Park, is participating in this year’s Miami Spice!
But before I get all excited about Miami Spice, there’s an even more exciting foodie experience on the calendar…the Miami New Times Iron Fork cooking competition is going to be kicking off Miami Spice this year!
Miami New Times Iron Fork Event
When I say that Iron Fork is Miami’s most hotly anticipated culinary event, I am not kidding. We simply don’t have events like this on a regular basis! It reminds me of Top Chef, Iron Chef, etc – it’s going to be so cool to have something like this right here in my hometown!
Two of the best Miami chefs will go head to head in a battle for chef supremacy, and the entire event will be overseen by famed “Mango Gang” veteran Allen Susser. Each chef will receive a basket of food items – along with one secret ingredient – then create a tantalizing creation before a panel of local celebrity chefs hand selected by Chef Allen. The winner will receive the prestigious Miami New Times Iron Fork award, signifying the area’s top toque. Pretty cool, right?
In addition to the competition, Iron Fork will feature a grand tasting where about 45 of Miami’s finest restaurants will offer tastings of their signature menu items. They’re estimating that about 3000 people will turn out for the event, which will be held at the lovely Adrienne Arsht center!
