Flavors of Florida

Celebrate research and innovation at FLAVORS of FLORIDA 2018!

Crisp and juicy blueberries, sweet and tangy Florida citrus, peaches bred for the Florida sun, tropicals fresh from Homestead, and an assortment of spring vegetables from the UF Field & Fork Farm and Gardens are just a handful of the ingredients to tempt the taste buds at this year’s event.

On the evening of Monday, April 9, university, community, and industry leaders will gather at the Evans Champions Club at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to taste recipes, brews and spirits showcasing signature and emerging flavors of Florida.

Renowned Gainesville chef, Bert Gill of Blue Gill Quality Foods and author of Pickled, Fried, and Fresh: Bert Gill’s Southern Flavors, will lead the team of Florida chefs and producers contributing to this year’s menu.

UF/IFAS scientists and Florida’s agricultural leaders are developing new cultivars, new technologies and new industries to feed the future and strengthen Florida’s communities. Enjoy the fruits of their labor and converse with leading research scientists at this premier event.
