Producers Take Taste from Screen to Live Gourmet Event

Blondie Ras Productions, creators of "Taste the Islands" television show will take the show's concept from the screen to a live event. With the co-sponsorship of City of Miramar Mayor, Wayne Messam, they are translating the show's exploration of exotic eats and the mystique of the islands into an event called The 'Taste the Islands' Experience.

Scheduled for the evening of June 1 at the Miramar Cultural Center, the event will feature a selection of gourmet appetizers prepared by celebrity chefs Jamaican Hugh "Chef Irie" Sinclair and Haitian Cynthia "Chef Thia" Verna. There will also be a selection of tropical cocktails, music and dancing in a setting that recalls the look, taste and feel of the islands. Complete details are available at
