Not long ago, we announced the 3rd event for “Flavors of the World,” the gastronomic journey highlighting the collection of casual, gourmet, and fine-dining options in Casa de Campo taking place this weekend! Three amazing chefs from Miami, Chef José Mendín of the Pubbelly Group, and special friends, Chef Jeremy Ford of the Matador Room by Jean-Georges and Chef Bradley Kilgore of Alter, will take over this weekend, July 15th-July 17th, with the following events PLUS an incredible beach party!!
As we have seen from the last two editions, Flavors of the World Spain and Dominican Republic, the event begins with a dinner on the first day with guest chefs and concludes in a Sunday brunch. This time, partakers will gather at Pubbelly Sushi Friday night and Sunday morning for appetizing dishes by José Mendín, but Saturday afternoon holds a special treat! Say hello to a fabulous beach party in Minitas with live music and all three chefs joining forces and serving up Miami’s classic beach foods, but with a twist of course from the experts.
Miami has become very popular when it comes to food, what with its affordable eats and trendy hot spots. Food from Puerto Rico, México, Venezuela, Cuba, and more make it a whirlwind of flavors and lucky region for tourists, not to mention its beautiful beaches. Chefs are always flocking there with innovative dishes or for culinary inspiration.
Casa de Campo has the pleasure of welcoming not one, but three very popular chefs from Miami’s amazing food scene. Chef Mendín is a five-time James Beard Award nominee for Best Chef in the South, Chef Ford won the title of Top Chef Season 13, and Chef Kilgore received his first James Beard nomination this year for Rising Star Chef.
