The two months of fine-dining deals known as Miami Spice isn't all about the culinary savings. This year, organizers are also putting on cooking demos around the city with chefs of some of the city's top restaurants. Macy's at Dadeland and Aventura will showcase the cooking skills of chefs from Ortanique on the Mile, Bizcaya and La Marea. Here is the full list:
Saturday, August 16: Chef Edgar Leal, Cacao Restaurant
Saturday, August 23: Chef Cindy Hutson, Ortanique on The Mile
Saturday, August 30: Chef Miguel Magaña, Bizcaya (Ritz-Carlton/Coconut Grove)
Saturday, August 16: Chef Pietro Rota, La Marea
Saturday, August 30: Chef Sally Camacho, Cascata Grille
All demos are free and open to the public and take place at 1 p.m. at the Kitchen at the Cellar. But in case you are too lazy to drive yourself to either location, you can learn from the comfort of your own home as Miami Spice also plans to showcase some demos live from some of the local television stations.
