The VIP Chef Showdown during South Beach Seafood Week has quickly become one of my favorite events of the year, as it keeps getting bigger and wilder! The night assembles top executive chefs for 8 competitive (and often, over-the-top) cook-offs. With thousands of guests flocking over to the hospitality village, the energy is truly next level. Attendees cheer on their favorite chef, sample the dishes of each competing chef, and dance to the party set I provide during each battle.

The main event, Battle Taco is the night’s biggest attraction with feuding rivals, Naked Taco & Bodega always going head to head. And although it was a close match, this year, it was returning champ, Bernie Matz FTW!

Special thanks to all the sponsors who made the entire weekend of festivities possible and to my friends at CI Management for having me back to DJ for a third year.
