Six of the most popular festival chefs from Jazz in the Gardens served up their greatest hits last week. More than 100 people were in attendance to sneak a peek at what Jazz in the Gardens has to offer this year. We are happy to report that on March 15 and 16, 50 festival chefs will be at Food Village for the 9th Annual Jazz in the Gardens and if the preview that media insiders were provided is any indication of what is to come, we are sure you won’t be disappointed. This year’s food lineup rivals the stage performers: LL Cool J, Jamie Foxx, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, Trey Songz, Kelly Rowland, Mint Condition, Anthony Hamilton, Stanley Clarke, Rachelle Farrell and Boney James.
“There isn’t a better place to eat in South Florida than right here. It’s nice to be able to try a little bit of everything, I can’t decide what I like best. The BBQ is amazing, Chef Winston’s seafood rice is incredible, Keith Reed’s conch salad is the best I’ve ever had, the jerk chicken at the Kingston Delight is the best in South Florida, CuzN Tim’s seafood is super fresh and seriously, the Fruitzen Delite Italian ice is the best I’ve ever had,” said Melissa Dunn, Tamarac.
