James Beard Foundation's Taste America®

It’s time to take a look this weekend’s other Taste America destination: Miami!

On Friday, September 20, Taste America All-Star, JBF Award winner, and Chopped host Ted Allen is joining some of Florida’s best chefs for a multicourse dinner at the Spanish Monastery, a treasured historical and architectural landmark. This very special evening will include a cocktail reception featuring libations from Khong River House, MC Kitchen, Pubbelly Restaurant Group, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, and Eating House.

On Saturday, join us at Sur La Table in Boca Raton’s Mizner Park for a day of free cooking demos, tastings, cookbook signings, and more. Ted Allen will start the day with a demonstration in Sur La Table’s demo kitchen, followed by a pastry demo with Top Chef Just Desserts winner Yigit Pura.

The James Beard Foundation is proud to donate a portion of Miami proceeds to World Central Kitchen, a charity that works with developing countries to find sustainable solutions, like solar-powered stoves, to food insecurity.

Don’t forget: Taste America is also landing in Chicago this weekend.
