October is Flavorful Time at Historic Coast

 St. Augustine has all the Autumn Flavors

 October is here and chefs on Florida's Historic Coast are making culinary history with signature dishes featuring local favorites and heritage-inspired flavors.  Called Flavors of Florida's Historic Coast, this special program offers unique, delicious and affordably-priced dining choices. Nearly 20 outstanding restaurants are featuring a prix fixe (fixed price) three-course dinner that will showcase their chef's best culinary skills. Great food, paired with a wide variety of lodging options and enticing cultural events make October an ideal time to experience the history, romance and charm of St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches.
 A part of the Spanish Empire for far longer than it has been included in the United States, Florida's Historic Coast offers a unique culinary heritage resulting from a centuries-old cultural diversity that continues today. Spanish roots, spiced with Minorcan flair and blended with the very best in traditional Southern coastal cuisine create a palate-pleasing culinary collection that intrigues and pleases both "foodies" and folks who simply want to enjoy a memorable meal in a beautiful locale.

In addition to the tantalizing daily creations offered by participating restaurants, The Flavors Top Chef Cook-Off, a benefit for Home Again St. Johns, is set for October 12 at the beautiful Renaissance Resort World Golf Village Resort. This exciting competition will feature Flavors chefs who will conjure up their signature dishes for a panel of celebrity judges who will select the Best of the Best. In addition, everyone in attendance will sample the prix fixe dinners featured during Flavors. Ballots submitted by attendees will result in the selection of the Flavors People's Choice Award! Sponsored by the Villagio Italian Grill at the Renaissance, proceeds from the event will go to support Home Again St. Johns, the organization primarily responsible for meeting the needs of the homeless in St. Johns County.

And, while dining in any one of the participating Flavors Restaurants during October 7 - 12, $1 from each order off the Flavors menu will go toward supporting the work of Home Again St. Johns.
