EatBeat: A Mediterranean Expo for Foodies

May 29th, 2009 · No Comments


Mediterranean experience is just that

As the fomer food editor at The Palm Beach Post, I used to go to a lot of food shows. Unfortunately, they weren’t around here and not all were open to the public.

But the one this weekend in Miami is worth the drive and it’s open to all. It’s a riot of tastes, people, and smacks of the exotic cultures we cooks live for. Italian, sure, but Spanish, Greek, Turkish, Northern African, including Moroccan (my fav!), Algerian, Syrian, Lebanese, Egyptian — it’s all there. If you’re any kind of food lover, I strongly urge you to make a day of it and go and explore these fabulous cuisines.

Saturday, 10-4, $35

One of my good food friends, Maude Eaton, will be demonstrating a dish onstage at 2 p.m. There are several demos and little seminars to get in on during the day, and of course, a hall filled with foods for sampling and recipes to glean. There will be exhibitors for travel as well. For $35, it should be entertaining, educational — and delicious. Maybe I’ll see you there!
