Morales' love for a variety of bread puddings made us hungry and secured his win. I'll be sure to order the one made with Krispy Kreme doughnuts the next time I see the Sugar Rush truck.
Morales told us he's a South Florida native who "enjoys all
of the diverse cuisine of our area. From pastelitos to pho to foie gras,
tastes good, it's on my plate," he says.
Morales joins a panel of judges that includes:
- Rosa Cordero, blogger from the Food Chica and Accidental Sexiness blogs
- Laine Doss, New Times food writer
- Chef Ted Inserra, Old Fort Lauderdale Original Breakfast House chef
Uncorked! is a food, wine, spirits, craft beer, and dessert tasting with chefs from YOLO, Timpano Italian Chop House, Morton's, the Capital Grille, and Elevation Burger, among others.
Burger Beast will also host a burger battle at the event among Rok:Brgr, Elevation Burger, Charm City Burgers, Burger Bar by Chef Allen, and Quickie's. Publix's Apron Cooking School and Brown Distributing will whip up food and beer pairings. There's also a baking competition for culinary students from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale who compete for a scholarship.
If you'd like to attend, tickets cost $150 and can be picked up at will call. Proceeds go toward scholarships for Junior Achievement.
