Dennis Williams is the winner of the Miami Dish Trivia Contest! He was the first person to answer all of the questions correctly, and for extra credit he joined the Miami Dish Twitter feed. He gets to enjoy a free pie from The Purple Pie Company. Thanks to all who participated in the online scavenger hunt!

Name two Miami Book Fair authors that Miami Dish wrote about this year or last.

Possible answers included Shirley O. Corriher (Bakewise) , Michelle Bernstein (Cuisine a Latina), Alisa Smith and J.B. MacKinnon (Plenty: One Man, One Woman and A Raucous Year of Eating Locally), and Ronni Litz Julien (What Should I Feed My Kids?)

Name three dishes served at the First Annual Farm to Table Dinner.

Possible answers are listed here.

Name a farm mentioned in the First Annual Farm to Table Dinner.

Sawmill Farms, Red Dragon Fruit Company, and Bee Heaven Farm were among the farms mentioned in the First Annual Farm to Table Dinner.

Name a recent topic mentioned in Miami Dish’s Twitter feed.

Check out our Twitter feed for recent topics. Dennis mentioned the arrival of green beans at the Redland Organics farm collective.

Who in my family makes traditional Venezuelan holiday foods?

I’ll quote Dennis: “One would be your mother, hooking up that pan de jamon for the holidays, and we can’t forget about your cousin’s wife Mercedes, she hooks up the torta negra, hallacas, and galletas de mantequilla for Christmas.” Mercedes is very busy right now, judging by the top post listing at Miami Dish. Oh, and by the way, Mercedes’ menu includes pan de jamon this year too.

What does Shirley Corriher recommend you do instead of sifting?

She recommends mixing all of the ingredients thoroughly – you “beat the daylights” out of your mix.

Who taught John DiRocco how to make kalamansi drink?

It was his mother-in-law from the Philippines.
