Fresh Florida Fashion: With or without crinolines, this 100% cotton by McKay of Miami is a standout. Bare shouldered to revel in the Florida sun with a matching stole for evening, this versatile casual is just right for round the clock activities. 1958
The Florida Fresh booth has a mixture of new and old dishes. The first dish, the Kale Salad with Dried Cherries, Almonds, Goat Cheese and White Balsamic Vinaigrette was over at the Urban Ears booth last year. This salad and the watermelon salad basically traded places.
The Shrimp and Stone-ground Grits with Andouille Sausage, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes and Cilantro is a returning item. This dish is nice and spicy without being overwhelming. I’ve gotten it without the grits because I’m really not a fan, but the shrimp and other fixings are tasty enough without, but if you get this dish as is, this is another super filling one!
Fans of the Country Pate from Food and Win might recognize this new dish to the Flower and Garden Festival. The Florida Larder Board: Orlando-made Ricotta Cheese, Cahaba Farms Micro Onions, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic, Country Pâté and House-made Pickles. Everything in this dish is super local, so it’s a pretty cool concept as well as a new dish! Everything on the plate was made or grown fresh in the area, no cans, nothing frozen, just incredibly fresh ingredients!
