The Festival is celebrating America’s culinary fascination with fried chicken once again! We've carefully curated more than a dozen chefs, led by Chef Tyler Florence, to serve up their best birds - paired with refreshing bubbly - poolside at the W South Beach. Florence, a fan-favorite Food Network personality known for the hit series The Great Food Truck Race and cookbook author, is the force behind successful San Francisco, CA restaurant Wayfare Tavern and their award-winning fried chicken! This fan-favorite walk-around tasting will once again feature a star-studded group of chefs showcasing both classic recipes and unique twists on mouth-watering combinations of crispy, juicy goodness - and will be topped off with a special Salty Donut treat inspired by Florence himself.
Brut, rosé and more - guests can sip their way through France in effervescent delight as they indulge in bubby from six different champagne houses. Juicy fried chicken, sharpened side dishes, and precisely paired champagnes will fulfill this night of sizzle poolside at the W South Beach!
EAT. DRINK. EDUCATE.
All proceeds from the Festival benefit the students of the Florida International University Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management who assist Festival organizers in all aspects, including Festival planning, logistics and overall execution.
