Florida Flavors

With a unique geographical position, rich natural resources, cultural diversity and an enviable tropical climate, Florida flavors are in a state of their own.

Florida cuisine is a matrix of exciting tastes, united by a common denominator: fresh. The salty tang of the sea from freshly harvested Apalachicola oysters to the juicy sweetness of Plant City strawberries and the smell of smoked tenderloin to the crunch of crispy fried okra all define delicious Florida fare.
