The Taste the Islands Experience
Show creators Blondie Ras Productions, with the co-sponsorship of City of Miramar Mayor, Wayne Messam, are translating the show’s exploration of exotic eats and the mystique of the islands into an event called The ‘Taste the Islands’ Experience. Scheduled for the evening of June 1 at the Miramar Cultural Center, the event will feature a selection of gourmet appetizers prepared by the show’s celebrity chefs Jamaican Hugh “Chef Irie” Sinclair and Haitian Cynthia “Chef Thia” Verna. There will also be a selection of tropical cocktails, music and dancing in a setting that recalls the touch, taste and feel of the islands. Complete details are available at www.ttiexperience.com.
The evening will include a preview of the new season of ‘Taste the Islands’ and live cooking demonstrations. Non-profit partner Food for the Poor will benefit from a silent auction, with funds raised earmarked for causes in Jamaica and Haiti.
