The tantalizing aroma of seasonings and spices will permeate the air at this year’s South Florida Emerald Society’s Irish Stew Cook-Off on Sunday, Jan. 28, 1 p.m., at the Miami Yacht Club.
Round up your friends and family members to enjoy a fun-filled day that includes sampling decadent Irish fare, a little friendly competition and sweeping views of Biscayne Bay. Trophies will be awarded to first, second and third place finishers, as well as to the cook with the best presentation.
“Bringing the community together to enjoy a taste of Ireland is a wonderful opportunity for locals to experience our Irish heritage at a venue that is distinctly Miami,” said Mark Donnelly, chair of the Irish Stew Cook-Off committee.
Tickets are $18 for adults and $5 for children in cash or checks made payable to the South Florida Emerald Society. Members and cooks will receive two tickets for beer, wine, or soda.
