Florida Cuisine

Fresh product and its different cultural interpretations make Miami shine.  On this Travel with Doc Culinary Insights Tour we explore the great chefs in southern Florida and how they each approach and use these great ingredients.

Along with chef Norman Van Aiken, we will interact with chefs Brad Kilgore, Jeremiah Bullfrog, Giorgio Rapicavoli, and others to get a great overview of dining in Miami and Key West.


Miami has a vibrant cocktail culture and on this culinary tour we will learn how some of these great mixologists make their drinks.

We will have a couple of cocktail workshops both at The Broken Shaker and at The Eating House to give us two takes on local cocktails.
