Join Mandy Baca, a local historian and food scholar, for a bucket-list worthy afternoon of food and culture. Explore a unique part of Miami-Dade County: Sweetwater and Fontainebleau. This is the heart of Miami’s Nicaraguan community. And Miami has the largest Nicaraguan community in the United States, so that’s saying something.
Despite the community’s prominence in Miami, too few people are familiar with Nicaraguan culture and and cuisine.
Mandy has carefully selected 6 different local food businesses that represent the community. And we’ll be tasting more than 10 Nicaraguan delicacies. Some of these foods can’t be found anywhere else outside of Nicaragua.
At the same time, Mandy will go over the cultural significance of what we’ll be sampling, the special ingredients and techniques that go into Nicaraguan cuisine, and the history of Nicaraguans in Miami.
Transportation is included. An air conditioned van will meet us at our first stop, take us to all our stops, and return back to where we started.
This food crawl will include:
– A exclusive visit to an iconic formal restaurant.
– The best and biggest tamale in Latin America.
– A unique take on a salad.
– Learning why Nicaragua is the Dairy Land of Central America with tastings of artisanal, locally-made cheeses and cultured cream.
– A more sophisticated chocolate milk.
