Imagine an event where the flavors and sensations of the Caribbean and Latin America are on display where tourists and locals can sample and experience music, dance and food that highlight the cultural heritage of the islands and the Latin feel of Miami. Thatâ€™s Spice It Up! Miami – a monthly culinary experience that includes all the ingredients of island cuisine, spirits, music and dance. The Caribbean Marketplace cultural destination, at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex, is the perfect backdrop for a fun and interactive atmosphere that is sure to indulge in the tastes, sights and sounds that are the true essence of the islands and Latin flavor of Miami. Spice It Up! Miami kicks off on Saturday, April 29th at the Caribbean Marketplace.
This monthâ€™s culinary master, Chef Irie will offer a fun, informative cooking demonstration showing attendees how to season and prepare delicious recipes.
