Sometimes I wish there were two of me. That way, I could make it to all the fun food events that are occurring simultaneously this weekend.
First up on Saturday, March 24, from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. is Slow Food Orlando's "Slow Fish" event in Cape Canaveral. Those who attend get to learn about three local fisheries then eat a delicious, local seafood lunch prepared by Merritts Table, along with beer. The cost is $25 for adults and $10 for children 10 and under. Where: Wild Ocean Seafood Market, 710 Bluewater Dr., Cape Canaveral.
Now on to authentic Cajun food: Tibby's New Orleans Kitchen is holding its first-ever Crawfish Boil on March 24 and March 25. They will also have live music from 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. both days. Where: 2203 Aloma Ave., Winter Park.
The fun continues on Sunday, March 25, when The Daily City's Food Truck Bazaar returns to downtown Orlando. Twice a month, this event - which features 20 different gourmet food trucks - is held behind the Fashion Square Mall, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. It is a great tail-gating type of atmosphere since many people bring their own chairs and tents to hang out and socialize.
