Ft Lauderdale has flavor

IMG_0440

A couple of weekends ago, Flavors of Fort Lauderdale went down.  It was touted as a 4 day celebration of the culinary lifestyle and casual elegance of South Florida. The inaugural Flavors included a variety of events featuring the finest culinary offerings from local and regional restaurants and chefs, as well as world class wines and spirits, gourmet specialty foods and lifestyle experiences.  I’d say that description was quite fitting.

The events included:

  • Dine Around Fort Lauderdale, An evening dedicated to Fort Lauderdale’s finest restaurants. Each participating restaurant offered prix fixe specialty dinners paired with wine and spirits, hosted by the area’s top executive chefs, sommeliers and celebrities.
  • Late-Night Flavors, a lively, entertaining after-hours celebration.
  • Flavors Kick-Off Party,  A VIP gathering hosted poolside by The Westin Beach Resort & Spa, which offered a gourmet selection of tastings created for the festival by Executive Chef David Hackett, paired with select spirits and wine, entertainment and more.
  • Flavors After Dark, A lively evening of entertainment, themed beverages, action stations and food trucks providing their best offerings.
  • Flavors Grand Tasting, featuring food and beverage purveyors, local restaurants and lifestyle organizations

I attended the Grand Tasting and had a GRAND TIME!

I tasted everything from fish cakes to meatballs made of veal, pork, and beef to italian ice treats to salmon tartare.  Of course, I passed on all of the offerings of spirits.  I even saw old friends like my besties at Cheese Culture and Bocce Nation.

In addition to food, there were luxury automobiles, cigars, boats and other displays of grandeur.  The setting was PERFECT!  It was a fun afternoon.  I’ll DEF have Flavors on my calendar for next year!
