David Muir Talks Photography and the "Taste The Islands Experience" Food Festival

As we navigate through the winter, we catch ourselves dreaming about warm places to visit. Since we at The Quintessential Gentleman are fans of South Florida, we are always looking for an excuse to jump on a plane to Miami.

People tend to only think about Miami and Fort Lauderdale, but there are so many gems throughout the South Florida area. Pembroke Pines is one of the hidden gems in South Florida, and the 4th annual Taste The Islands Experience (TTIX2020) will be taking place there May 9-10th at the Charles F. Dodge Center.

The TTIX2020 is a food-inclusive Caribbean Culinary Experience. Food and spirits enthusiasts with a taste for island indulgences gather and enjoy authentic sights, sounds and flavors of the Caribbean, celebrity cooking demos, live music, and so much more.
