I have to admit, the first thing I think of when I think Florida: Disney. I guess I'm not the only one out there who has that mental association, especially if you're British.
Miami, though, is a place I know almost nothing about, except that I've heard it described as the Capital of Latin America. If that is indeed the case, it seems it would be the perfect place to do a food tour.
And that is where Miami Culinary Tours comes in.
This new company, based in (you guessed it) Miami, offers tours leading you through the city's historic districts giving you the chance to try everything from Cuban coffee to Peruvian ceviche to Italian gelato.
Recently we were contacted by the company's founder, Grace, who offered us the chance to take one of their tours. Unfortunately for us, we won't be going to Miami any time soon…but fortunately for you, this means we now have a gift certificate to give away entitling two people to take either their South Beach or Little Havana food tours, worth US$118 (£74)!
For bit of a better idea what the company does and stands for, here's a snippet from their website:
Embark in a fun and delicious culinary food tour adventure through the authentic flavors of the diverse cultures which elevate the soul of Miami on these exclusive culinary walking tours of South Beach, Wynwood and Little Havana. Miami Culinary Tours offers 2-3 hour food tasting and cultural walking tours to off-the-beaten-path eateries. Their guided food tours in Miami are a non-touristy, and offer a local experience so you feel like a native at the end of the tour. Stroll with Miami Culinary Tours and stop at seven locations along the way and learn about the cultural aspects of each of the dishes you will be tasting. When you have an appetite for adventure get ready to savor the diverse cultural community of Miami through hand-picked family run restaurants, kitchens of celebrated chefs, generational bakeries, best kept secret food shops and ethnic eateries.
So, if you live in or are visiting Miami before September 2014 and would like the chance to take one of these tours for free, this is your chance!
