This past Saturday, high above the city, in the penthouse of a Midtown condo, thirty or so South Florida foodies got together to eat at the whims of Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog.The Cobaya Gourmet Guinea Pigs
are a web enabled network of adventurous eaters who are looking for unconventional fare not available on Miami restaurant dinner menus. Kevin Jones of MiamiWineTasters.com
said, "We find a chef with good skill and imagination and say we'll be the guinea pig. There's no restriction on what they make because they're not selling it in a restaurant where people won't eat it. Restaurants are a business, and that can keep a chef from really experimenting. It's not for everyone, you don't get to order. You just show up, you pay, and you eat."
Events are organized by local bloggers Chowfather
, who said "More people are interested than I thought. Miami doesn't get a lot of attention as a food town, but there are a lot of talented chefs here."
Here are some pictures from the event....
