The 5th annual Creole Food Festival is bringing a whole lot of flavor to the city of Miami.
This year, to celebrate Women’s History Month, the festival is continuing the world class experience by showcasing an all female lineup of creole chefs featuring cuisines and beverages from the Caribbean, Africa, Latin America, American South and South America.
“Creole Food Festival was created as a platform to highlight the talents of black and brown chefs. With the culinary industry being predominantly male and white, we were intentional about showcasing female chefs of color. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 22.8% of chefs and head cooks in 2021 were women. We want to showcase the multicultural salad that Miami has to offer while celebrating what unites us through food,” says co-founder Fabrice Armand.
The lineup includes all-star chefs Christina Coupet, Grace Ramirez, Airis Johnson, Cynthia Verna (aka Chef Thia), Snegugu Kine and Amina Ly.
The Creole Food Festival kicks off this Saturday, March 18th, at The Ancient Spanish Monastery from 3pm-8pm. Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased on Eventbrite.
