The flavors are sizzling with cultural diversity for the annual Creole Food Festival. This national festival makes a stop in Miami and will showcase an all star lineup of black and brown female chefs, cuisines and beverages from the Caribbean, Africa, Latin America, American South and South America on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at the Ancient Spanish Monastery, 16711 West Dixie Highway, North Miami Beach, FL from 3pm to 8pm.

“The term Creole is a person of mixed European and Black descent, especially in the Caribbean. The Creole Food Festival was created as a platform to highlight the talents of black and brown chefs. With the culinary industry being predominantly male and white, we were intentional about showcasing female chefs of color especially since we are celebrating International Women’s Month. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 22.8% of chefs and head cooks in 2021 were women. We want to showcase the multicultural salad that Miami has to offer while celebrating what unites us through food,” says co-founder Fabrice Armand.

Founded in 2018 in New York City by Fabrice Armand and Elkair Balla, the Creole Food Festival uses culinary excellence as a unifying thread that will include new inspirations from renowned chefs:
