This past weekend, the Dade County Parks and Rec and Thai-American Association sponsored the annual Asian Culture Festival, now in its 20th year at Homestead's Fruit & Spice Park.  It gave fairgoers the unique opportunity to experience the cultures of Asia through the food, music, and dance of the Far East. About 30 food vendor booths offered a wide variety of authentic Asian cuisine alongside Indian, Jamaican, and even Israeli cuisines.

I met this Siam Lotus-affiliated family through their vegetable spring rolls, which were perfectly cooked to a satisfying crunch. Check out how they make 'em.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
