One of the biggest food tasting celebrations in Central Florida is commemorating its 20th anniversary; Men Cooking from the Heart will again show off the culinary madness of over 50 volunteer chefs throughout Brevard. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida’s 20th annual event will be Saturday, March 22, at the Melbourne Auditorium.

Men Cooking from the Heart is one event you don’t want to miss. Come prepared to taste samples of dishes prepared by local volunteer chefs and enjoy live entertainment, as well as live and silent auctions. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Florida’s Board Members shared with SpaceCoast Living their favorite recipe! This is just a sample of what’s to come at this event!
