“Dish N Fish” at Vilano Beach

Dish N Fish is a new culinary tourism event in the Vilano Beach Town Center. This event is a collaborative fundraising partnership with the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) and Vilano Beach Main Street to raise awareness of the coastal community and area dining.

The event featured a Chef Competition among high school culinary students in a program called “ProStart.” Five teams from around the area competed under the tutelage of master chefs. The Dish of the Day featured Ceviche prepared in a variety of recipes. Ten additional restaurants had seafood and shrimp dishes available for purchase.  Samples were offered. Area wine distributors and craft beer makers were offering tastings.

Also the air was full of music as musicians played live while the public strolled around the grounds and others sat under the tent.
