James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Miami

In addition to Chicago, the great city of Miami was also on the itinerary for the first weekend of James Beard Foundation's Taste America®. On Friday we headed to the historic Ancient Spanish Monastery, where we enjoyed a fabulous meal prepared by James Beard Award–winning and other top Florida-based chefs. Saturday consisted of cooking demonstrations and cookbook signings by Top Chef Just Desserts Yigit Pura and Taste America All-Star Ted Allen at Sur La Table.

Check out photos from of Miami events here. We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all our participants! And don't forget: Taste America is swinging through many more cities during the coming weekends.


James Beard Foundation’s Taste America® would not be possible without the generous support of our title sponsor, Chase Sapphire Preferred® Visa Signature®. We would also like to thank our retail partner, Sur La Table, our media partner, Every Day with Rachel Ray, and national sponsors Breville, Delta Air Lines, The Gulf Oyster Industry Council, and Lurpak® butter.

Additional support for events in Miami provided by: Aloft Miami Brickell, Epic, Irie Foundation/ DJ Troubles, Panache, Premier Beverage, Prestige, Sunrise Produce, Susie Scrumptious, Swank Produce, and Zak the Baker.
