Thanks to the World of The Latino Cuisine for partnering with Johanny’s Kitchen to promote this event. As always, all opinions are my own.
Blogging has become a way for me to share not only my passion for food, but to share bits and pieces of my life and my Latin culture. In addition, being a food blogger has helped me to connect with so many amazing people in the foodie world. A couple of years ago I heard about “The Latin Food and Wine Festival” for the first time; I always wanted to go but never had the opportunity… Well, not this year!
What’s The Latin Food and Wine Festival?
The festival features samples from the diverse cuisines of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal), Latin America, and the Caribbean. You can find all kinds of dishes from paellas to pupusas, to empanadas or mofongo to name a few. Also beverages such as wines, sangrias, rums, pisco, and other sumptuous spirits and libations.
The event will feature musical entertainment and cultural presentations as well. Also, over 40 restaurants will offer their delicious food! The celebrity chefs presenting at the event are headlined by Fernando Desa, Goya’s Executive Chef, and Celebrity Chef Ricardo Cardona, a radio and TV personality who is Marc Anthony’s personal chef; Carolina Arias, an expert on the Cibao Region cuisine of the Dominican Republic, and Eddy Fernádez Monte, Presiden of Cuba’s Culinary Federation who will lecture and prepare dishes of the classical Cuban Cuisine.
“We want to accommodate everyone as this would be the place to be for foodies and lovers of the various Latino Cuisine –Bill Colon, Lead officer of the World of the Latino Cuisine Organization.
The Festival will be on August 23rd at 5:00 pm at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Newark, New Jersey. Tickets can be purchased online at www.latinofoodshow.com, go to “Attendee Registration” and use promo code Johanny1
