The main event of the night will be the "Chef Showdown" featuring local chefs teamed up with Marlins alumni. Chef Andres Barrientos from Miami Smokers and Marlins legend Charles Johnson return to defend their title against Chef Odell Torres from Estefan Kitchen and 1997 World Series MVP Liván Hernández. The MVP Cooking Challenge presented by Estrella Damm will be judged by Chef Adrianne Calvo, John Lermeyer, award-winning bartender, Marlins All-Star Cliff Floyd and other local celebrities. The evening will feature live local entertainment by Downbeat Disciples and conclude with a performance by Miami's own, DJ Laz.
 
Exhibiting restaurants and microbreweries will also compete for the coveted Taste of Miami "Grand Slam" award. The "Grand Slam" award is a "Best In Show "selection that will be determined by votes from the event's attendees.
 
Taste of Miami targets the vast population of South Florida "foodies," but also aims to attract a diverse demographic of general consumers who enjoy food, drink, and entertainment, all while raising money for charity.
