Enjoy a bit of time in the Caribbean . . . vicariously. That’s the guarantee for this interview with cookbook author and award-winning Chef Michael Bennett. He’s an extremely enthusiastic and articulate culinary expert on the foods and finds of the islands, and will send you into foodie euphoria with his descriptions of the many good things to eat that can be found there and are featured in his cookbooks. We had last-minute camcord glitches with seeing him in video but did get to take a tour of his Food Brats website where samples of the recipes and photos from his two cookbooks can be found so you can take a look before placing an order for one or both of these beautiful cookbooks. During the show, we could feel the energy of the restaurant crowd at Bimini Boatyard in Miami South Florida where Chef Bennett dazzles the guests with his creative style. Come sail away for a bit with us to hear this dynamic chef and his conversation of Caribb-ican cuisine.
If you’d like to see us in all our interview finery you can check out the video version of this show here on blip TV. We’re getting better with our use of video tools and tech so hang in there with us and look for more visually interesting things in the future.

The 2010 Mango Congress
South Florida – July 9-11th, 2009 ~ When both houses of this Congress meet, it transforms the day into something delicious.
Both houses of Congress: the Harvesters of the Mango and the Artists that produce works of art with the Mango – are staging a weekend of mango exploration. Not just of mango and its exotic tropical tastes, but to discuss how beautiful a World it is with the mango as its King. The Mango has and will always be the King of Fruit. Our chef’s symposium is going to be held the weekend after of country’s independence to discuss the taste-variances and usages of this King of Fruit.
Mangoes, the fruit with 2000 different Sir names and tastes originates somewhere in in the sub-continent of India. That is why we are going highlight Indian varieties of Mango at this years Mango Symposium. South Florida, a bed of tropical infusion cookery has always been a place for mango tastes exploration. That is why this mango symposium has always been held here. It has been the only mango-inspired symposium in this hemisphere. This congress will be held in Miami at Fairchild Gardens once again. Fairchild Gardens the home of the Mango Symposium for the past decade has been the brain child of Dr. Richard Campbell.
He has traveled the World in search of mangoes in which he brings back to Fairchild Garden to plant and study. Dr. Campbell has selected his Indian mangoes on which to base this years mango discussions. Author / Chef Michael Bennett will help in bringing in noteworthy chefs from all around South Florida to be apart of this intense discussion. Chef Michael, the author of two tropically-inspired cookbooks, has been apart of this Mango Congress for many years. His writing revolves around the cooking of tropical recipes and feels as though this is the perfect venue to get the word out about how great mango are for any seafood dish. Being that this is South Florida, it is only natural that seafood and mango would be paired quite regularly on many restaurant menus.
