Celebrate the best of Florida at the 2020 Ocala Culinary Festival Flavors of Florida Dinner this March 26th at the Circle Square Cultural Center. Florida native and southern fusion Chef Randal White from Mark’s Prime Steakhouse & Seafood of Ocala will be presenting a plethora of tantalizing dishes encompassing the sunshine state’s fresh and finest ingredients sourced from Florida’s livestock ranches, family farms and our surrounding waters. Master mixologist Shelby Goelz from Monin in Tampa will be creating handcrafted signature cocktails during this special dining event.
With a unique geographical position, rich natural resources, cultural diversity and an enviable tropical climate, Florida is in a state of its own. And Florida cuisine is a matrix of exciting tastes, united by a common denominator- fresh. From the salty tang of the sea from fresh harvested Apalachicola oysters to the juicy sweetness of Plant City strawberries, the smell of smoked tenderloin to the crunch of crispy fried okra. It’s food that invokes memories of sipping sweet tea on front porches with friends and gathering around the table for a family Sunday dinner.
