Meet the Judges and Buy Tickets to JA World's Uncorked!

We have a winner! Congrats to Castor Morales on being chosen to judge the second-annual Junior Achievement World Uncorked! on January 21 at Broward College from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.

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,

"if it

tastes good, it's on my plate," he says.

Morales joins a panel of judges that includes:

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.
