Kicking off the 2017 South Beach Wine & Food Festival, presented by Food Network & Cooking Channel, Tabasco enlivened the Mexican flavors of South Beach alongside Miami Chef Richard Ampudia, commonly known as the “Godfather of Mexican Street Food,” with a private tasting at new restaurant, Lolo’s Surf Cantina. Chef Richard featured a variety of dishes created exclusively for the festival’s “Tacos After Dark” event, along with other bright and bold Tabasco-inspired fare. From octopus tacos, chicken quesadillas and rib-eye tacos to pumpkin guacamole and Tabasco granizado, guests munched on authentic cuisine while sipping cocktails by Jose Luis Leon.
Hosted by Tabasco CEO and President Tony Simmons of the McIlhenny Family, Lolo’s was buzzing with good food and good atmosphere. The event was the perfect opportunity to solidify Tabasco’s long-standing legacy within the South Florida market.
“We love the SOBEWFF because there a lot of people who enjoy spice and flavorful food,” said Simmons. “Tabasco believes this is a good opportunity for us to showcase our product while interacting with the culinary community.”
Family owned and operated for 149 years, Tabasco continually reinvents itself while staying aligned with their brand concept. As more events continue to unfold throughout the week, the private tasting at Lolo’s Surf Cantina was definitely not one to be missed!
