Hi foodies, October is here! And what a relief it is to be done with September… This last month was a tough one, what with Hurricane Irma and its effects here in South Florida, in the Keys, and across the state. Not to mention the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, where many of our friends and family live, and the earthquake in Mexico, which also touched many of our loved ones. That said, we’re moving forward, onwards, and upwards, and there’s a lot to be thankful and look forward to. An extension of Miami Spice through the end of October, for one. There’s a lot going on this month in Miami, including a number of ways our foodie community is coming together to help those still in need. For all that and more, check out our monthly round-up of local foodie news below. Enjoy!
Halloween is one of Miami’s most eclectic and eccentric nights on the event calendar, and with this year’s festivities falling on a Friday it’s sure to be an extremely frightful (and hopefully fruitful) affair. With just under 10 nights to go until witching hour, we’ve put together a quick round-up of some of the Magic City’s spookiest spots for you to wine and dine the night away. Read on for a variety of specials, set-menus and other special treats for the occasion.
Since I first heard about the Cochon 555 event a few years ago, I’d dreamt of the day that I would have the opportunity to sample the succulent swine selections served up by Miami’s best chefs. Well, last night my dream became a reality as I checked another item off of my foodie bucket list. The Kosher kids might not agree, but this Jewish boy was most definitely in hog heaven.
Here at MMTM we don’t claim to be culinary experts. We love food, we love our city and we love to explore the best of both so we can share our impressions along to you, our readers. That said, sometimes it’s nice to get an insider’s opinion so we’ve enlisted some of Miami’s most talented and successful chefs to help us out. Twice monthly, we’ll be bringing you different chef interviews to provide a closer look inside the minds, and kitchens, of Miami’s best and brightest.
