Latin Food Fest Brings the Best of Latin Food to San Diego

¡Latin Food Fest! Celebrates its Sixth Annual Hispanic Culinary Celebration

As a Latina, I can’t be more excited about Latin Food Fest which Celebrates its Sixth Annual Hispanic Culinary Celebration from August 17-18 at Marina Park, San Diego Bay, San Diego Bay. Among the Chefs are Philp from Born & Raised, Luisteen from Puesto, and Jose from Ironside Fish & Oyster.

San Diego’s largest food festival includes “Chefs Night Out,” a high energy party hosted by chef Ricardo Zarate and “Gran Tasting San Diego,” the festivals signature event featuring food, beverage, wine, beer, and spirits stations.

Cooking and Wine Demonstrations, Chef Awards, Toyota VIP Tent, and a four-hour music performance by La Junta Sound System.

Gran Tasting San Diego also includes the most comprehensive tasting of Latin spirits in California, which includes Agave Liquor, Bacanora, Cachaca, Fernet, Mezcal, Pisco, Pulque, Raicilla, Popo, Rum, Sotol, and Tequila. Wines from Argentina, Chile, Napa, Portugal, and Spain with be poured and paired with a variety of Hispanic cuisine.  Beer includes Tona Cerveza from Nicaragua, Estrella Damm from Spain, Bohemia from Mexico, local Latin favorite SouthNorte Beer Co, and a Michelada contest.

New to this year’s agenda are the thematic culinary pavilions serving food from South America, Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and Spain. Chefs Ricardo Zarate will conduct cooking demonstrations on the main stage, discuss Hispanic culinary trends, and sign copies of their latest books. The VIP Tent includes Oysters by Ironside Fish & Oyster, Grilled Lobster by Born & Raised, Chilean Carmen Reserve Cabernet, Octopus Agua Chile, Costa Rican Ceviche, Horchata Cheesecake, Aged Pisco, Massages, and a Gift Bag.
