Who’s ready for Miami’s ultimate cook-off? This year, Miami Spice launches on July 28th at 7pm with the ninth-annual Iron Fork event, featuring a culinary dual between three teams of chefs, Fabrizio and Nicola Carroof of Via Verdi, Dustin Ward of BLT Prime and Sean Brasel of Meat Market. All of the action will go down at the American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami.
In addition to witnessing the pot-to-pot battle, foodies can sample more than 70 of Miami’s favorite restaurants and participate in a culinary-themed silent auction. Participating restaurants include Toro Toro, Rusty Pelican, Morton’s the Steakhouse, Proof Pizza & Pasta, Rioja Grille, Via Verdi, and Bellmont.
All proceeds from the auction will support the No Kid Hungry Campaign, which aims to end childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need every day. General-admission tickets for Iron Fork cost $55 through July 27, and $70 through July 28. Make sure to come out and excite your tastebuds to kick off Miami Spice!
