Event: Big Boy Cook Club


Get ready for the first food event of the year and one you're not going to forget! Chef Aaron May is bringing some epic Chefs to town, maybe you've probably seen featured on Food Network. Plus, we'll be at one of my fav spots to host an event, Ocotillo and even better yet, I'm your co-host. Which probably means I'll be running around grabbing content and getting people to do Tiktoks with me!


What can you expect when you grab a ticket? Each chef will be preparing sample bites of their most famous dishes and creating new offerings, just for the guests, who will get to graze all day! There will be fun activations to help guests digest in between bites. From tattoo artists, to cigar rollers, to spirit sampling, and photo booths.


Local mixologist Casey Wallin will be creating the cocktails for the event and for the less adventurous, there will be beer, and wine too.


On the Ocotillo stage, DJ Irie, Resident DJ for the Miami Heat, will be keeping the crowd moving and there might even be a few other surprise guests. From Todd English’s Truffle-Fontina Pizzetta, Seared Snake river wagyu, foie gras espuma, to Goan Pork Sliders from the Badmaash Brothers- Arjun & Nakul Mahendro, to OG NY bagels, lox and caviar from the Little Pickle —there will be something for everyone INCLUDING vegan options.

Local hot sauce maven, Jacob Cutino of Cutino Sauces, will also be unveiling his next monthly “throw back” sauce at the event, as well as working with each chef to pair his various sauces with their offerings on the day.
