Reigning Goya Foods’ People’s Choice Award-winner for best whole roasted pig, Cindy Hutson returns to the Biltmore, Coral Gables, as she rounds up some of her fellow colleagues to take this swine-centric affair to a whole new level.
This year, Goya Foods and the National Pork Board, the Official Pork Sponsor and Preferred Protein of the Festival, will delight with professional pig roasters who will develop their own pig creations and a large variety of amazingly delicious sides. They will use their secret arsenal of special spice blends to make your taste buds dance with their treatment of all-natural, farm-raised, exceptionally tender pork, and delight swine lovers with creative pig-centric tapas, served inside the Biltmore Hotel Club Ballroom. At the same time, in the beautiful Courtyard, slow roasting whole pigs will render mouth-watering meat being served straight from each chef's own caja china and other inventive devices. All chefs will compete for the coveted People’s Choice Award, and this year, professional judges will cast their Foodie Awards as well.
And for the “sweet-toothers”, the Biltmore Hotel will feature its own “Sweet Zone” showcasing the creations of experienced pastry chefs and ice cream makers.
All these amazing savory samplings will be accompanied by wines from Folonari, La Linda and Luigi Bosca, as well as cocktails from Pig’s Nose Scotch Whisky, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and Zafra Rum. Up-beat tunes and live entertainment by El Tucán Cabaret & Modern Day Lounge will cap off this celebration of swine.
