Whether from a street corner or a white-tablecloth restaurant, tacos remain one of the hottest food trends out there! Chef Rick Bayless is the seven-time James Beard Award-winning behind several successful Chicago restaurants, New York Times’ best selling cookbooks, an Emmy-nominated Public Television series, and now he returns to the Festival as host of our fan-favorite tacos and tequila fiesta. In fact, even the Government of Mexico has given Bayless the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle – the highest decoration bestowed on foreigners whose work has benefitted Mexico and its people. We’ve rounded up an all-star cast of taco tastemakers to bring you some of America’s best offerings poolside at our host Loews Miami Beach for this popular late-night soirée. Variations using lechon, carne, pollo, and more will leave your taste buds satiated during this late night soirée bringing to life Mexico’s most iconic dish.
