This year at the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE, it’s all about the “belly.” Pork belly, that is, as the US Foods Food Fanatics chefs introduce the new Chef’s Line® Belly Burger and showcase their culinary talents with the ultimate Beach Belly S’more creation.
The Chef’s Line® Belly Burger combines the rich, smoky flavors of pork belly with the richness of beef. In South Beach, the Food Fanatics chefs are topping the rich and meaty burger with the colorful Cross Valley Farms Super Food Slaw which includes Brussels sprouts, broccoli slaw, kale, red cabbage and carrots and is sure to make it a delicious hit with festival goers.
“Pork belly use has grown 350 percent in the last four years and our new, first-of-its-kind Belly Burger showcases the rich and uniquely delicious reason why diners and chefs alike can’t get enough of this tasty treat,” said Pietro Satriano, chief merchandising officer at US Foods. “The Belly Burger packs in all of the right flavors and takes the traditional burger to the next level of indulgence.”
Festival attendees will continue their “belly binge” with the Food Fanatics on Saturday, February 21 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Meatopia: The Q Revolution presented by Creekstone Farms hosted by Guy Fieri curated by Josh Ozersky. Throughout the evening, Food Fanatics chefs will be serving up the ultimate campfire favorite – with a twist. Their own Beach Belly S’more recipe features Oaxacan Mole-rubbed pork belly and a toasted, maple Sriracha marshmallow layered between two chia-seeded graham crackers, delivering sweet and savory goodness with a hint of heat in every bite.
