Eating locally raised foods is a high priority for many consumers right now, and to celebrate this hot food trend, the Florida Local Marketplace offers fresh local fare with fun twists!
First up — the Florida Shrimp Ceviche with Fire Roasted Vegetables, Fried Plantains, and Cilantro. This is a fan favorite already (I keep overhearing people say “where’s that ceviche?” when I’m wandering the festival)!
While the festival had ceviche a couple of years ago at a different booth, this option seems like a fresher take on the dish. I loved the addition of fried plantains!
Next, the White Corn Arepa with Mangalitsa Pork Rilette and Zellwood Sweet Corn Salad is an interesting dish. I didn’t love the texture of the
Arepa (too mushy for my taste — similar texture to a tamale), but the pork was fantastic! The corn salad offers a tang to the flavor profile, so be expecting it!
The Florida Orange Grove Key Limen wine is definitely my new favorite, though! I thought this sweet, fun flavor was top notch! Definitely heading back for more of this one!
