No es una profesión, si no una sensación. Cuando uno se siente como una estrella de rock, uno puede canalizar esa sensación para lograr sus sueños. Para mí, de eso se trata la nueva campaña de Toyota, en que inspiran a los consumidores a ser “Toyota Rockstars.”

El que me conoce a mí, sabe que amo a Miami. Todo— la música, la comida, y las mezclas de culturas– me atraen los sentidos.

Aunque no esté por allá ahora, disfruté mucho seguir la acción en las redes sociales del South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF) de amistades y colegas que estuvieron allí.

Sobre todo, me emocionó ver al cantante famoso Carlos Ponce, quien es embajador del National Pork Board.
All who know me, know I love Miami. Everything— the music, the food, and the mixture of cultures– attract my senses.

Even if I’m not there right now, I really enjoyed following the action across social media networks during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF) from friends and colleagues who were there.

Above all, I was thrilled to see Carlos Ponce is the new ambassador for National Pork Board.

Here are a few details about the event:

The National Pork Board (NPB) returned to the 2017 Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF), as the Official Pork Sponsor and Preferred Protein of the Festival.

The National Pork Board also invited internationally recognized Puerto Rican actor, singer-songwriter and host, Carlos Ponce, to heat up kitchens across America and bring “The Taste of Now” to life. The campaign launched with a national sweepstakes that gave fans a chance to win a round trip to Miami to meet Ponce and be his guest at the Goya Foods’ Swine & Wine presented by The National Pork Board, home of the National Pork Board’s 3rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. The exclusive, all-pork event took place this Sunday, February 26 at The Biltmore Hotel, featuring 13 renown chefs from restaurants all over the country who competed to create the best pork dish throughout the night. The competition was judged by on-screen celebrity Carlos Ponce and chefs Richard Ingraham, Jose Mendin, Ingrid Hoffman, James Tahhan, Ana Quincoces and Fernando Desa.

Winners of the National Pork Board’s 3rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards were Brian Nasajon, executive chef from Wynwood’s Beaker & Gray Restaurant, who took home the 1st place. In 2nd place was Douglas Rodriguez, executive chef of Alma de Cuba in Philadelphia and 3rd place went to Chef David Hackett of The Biltmore Hotel. All three winning chefs received Pork branded roasting boxes from La Caja China™.

It’s one of those earth-shifting, life-altering moments that remains forever embedded in our collective memory. We will all probably remember what we were doing, where we were the night of November 25, 2016, as news broke about the death of infamous Cuba dictator Fidel Castro.
