Local chefs Chef Chris Ponte of Cafe Ponte (right) and Chef Ferrell Alvarez of Cafe Dufrain (left) will compete toe to toe in the Ultimate Mango Taste-Off, courtesy of the National Mango Board this Friday, July 8 at 3:30 p.m.
The chefs will pay homage to Tampa's diverse roots by creating mouthwatering fusion dishes featuring mangos.
I'll be a judge, as will Andy Huse and Charley Belcher, so be sure to stop by and say hi between bites.
The National Mango Board and Sweetbay Supermarket will offer mango treats and surprises along the way.
There are still a few seats available so reserve your spot now:
The mango-themed challenge will be hosted at Cafe Ponte, 13505 Icot Blvd., Suite 214, in Clearwater.
See you there!
