FP58: Miami Spice Month

20 Aug 2007, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants, podcast

Well, there’s a first time for everything. I recorded some of this show while on my flight back from Mexico, so you get to be in the air right along with me. Before Mexico, however, we had a chance to explore the flavors of Miami Spice Month, which happens during August and September, and features more than 80 restaurants with specially priced menus ($22 for lunch, $35 for dinner).

We began by attending Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation, which benefits anti-hunger programs both locally and nationally, and I’ll have video next week of my interview with coordinating chef Allen Susser of Chef Allen’s. We also savored tastings at Table 8 South Beach, La Palme d’Or, La Cofradia, Chispa, Sushi Samba Dromo and Grass, so I’ve included a little sampling of our thoughts on those. Yes, it was a busy week!

I’m also featuring video of my interview with Chef Govind Armstrong from Table 8 later this week, so don’t miss that!
