Foodies now have another reason to welcome spring. In addition to an influx of warmer-weather produce, the season also triggers the start of food-festival season. Ironically, one of the country's best foodie events is staged in a place where it's always warm. This April 21 and 22, Puerto Rico's famed Escambron Beach will host Saborea, the island's premier culinary event.
The word Saborea derives from the Spanish word sabor, which means "taste," a perfect term to encapsulate the diverse flavors found throughout the 3,515-square-mile Caribbean island. Guests will enjoy samples from Puerto Rico's best restaurants, attend classes and get tips on the best ways to prepare the island cuisine at eight demo kitchens, and hop between such events as a decadent exhibit of desserts paired with Puerto Rico's world-renowned coffee, the Libation Station (which should need no explanation), and The Next Culinary Wave, where the island's best chefs link up with students of local culinary schools for an exclusive, hands-on knowledge exchange.
A daily pass, which is good from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., runs you $99. Escambron Beach lies within the Puerta de Tierra neighborhood of San Juan.
