BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA FLORIDA – A veritable smorgasbord of seafood, landlubbers delights and unique treats are in store for guests at the 2019 Space Coast Seafood & Music Festival, March 7-10 at Space Coast Daily Park in Viera.
“If you like to enjoy a wide variety of seafood and other gastronomic delights, then come out and join all your friends, during the biggest food event of the year in Brevard County,” said Tom Palermo, a partner with Brevard Production Inc. and Space Coast Daily, who are sponsoring the four-day food and music love fest.
Laughing Crab Catering from Maryland will offer its 27-Time Award Winning Crab Cakes and Chesapeake Bay Seafood including Shrimp Puppies, Lime Grilled Shrimp, Maryland Soft Shell Crab Sandwiches, Rockfish Baskets, Crab Cake Sliders, CrabWon Tons, Maryland Crab Soup and Crab Stuffed Hush Puppies with Chesapeake Curly Fries of Fresh Cut Chips.
David French and his group called Hammerheads from Tampa will offer Seafood Jambalaya, Sautéed Scallops, Grouper Fingers, Coconut Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi, Fried Oysters and an awesome Seafood Platter.
Many more seafood specialists are signing on to present this smorgasbord of seafood and some landlubbers specialties too. Bangkok Style Thai Food with shrimp rolls, seafood yum yum, spicy shrimp, bbq shrimp, garlic shrimp, Pad thai, basil chicken and crazy noodle chicken and shrimp will be on offer.
Other delights include Steven Briguglio’s delicious freshly squeezed lemonade shakeups, Ron Joseph of Strawberry Events will tempt you with his Maryland Style Crab Fries and check out Alex Paulin, with his Rockstar Lobster tea, serving up freshly made lobster rolls and more.
Herminio Iphier from Puerto Rico will prepare his seafood rice, hot and spicy and David Nunnally and co. will offer their Fish & Chips, Shrimp, Oyster and Gator Boats. The California Fish Market will offer fresh, lightly breaded catfish platters, special oysters and squid.
For those looking for a delicious “pick-me-up,” Canadian transplant and now proud Brevardian, Alain Mazaudon, from Cora’s Island Cafe, will offer classic cold and hot gourmet coffees, fresh seafood paninis and delicious pastries. Like you some Cheese Curds?
Then stop and meet Travis Cernoch of Good Ones, who will be serving those oozy, cheesy delights, hot and fresh, along with Red Shrimp, lobster tails and poutine.
Lightly breaded and golden fried fresh calamari, crab cakes, coconut shrimp, alligator and jambalaya flash will be available at European Vele Dabeski’a Seafood Market – and stop by Brandon Grabhorn’s BZ’s Gelati Truck or Kevin Watson’s Cool Yeti, for some authentic Italian ice, ice creams and seafood dogs.
Thirsty? Pick up a refreshing lemonade fusion concoction from David Ortiz’s DR Smasher stand. Hankering for some hot pizza pies? Visit with Gary Carney at his Shadrach’s Fiery Furnace, where the man will be hand-tossing specialty artisan seafood and custom pizzas from inside his super hot brick oven.
New to the Space Coast and a true sight to behold, is the world’s largest ice cream truck. At 40 feet long, this ice cream bus, aptly named Cosmos Ice Cream, is proudly owned and operated by Tanisha Davis.
The Cosmos Ice Cream Truck was originally born as an Airport Shuttle bus and started its transformation in Brooklyn, New York. Once selected for the build, the second floor was added along with a staircase. All remnants inside the cabin were stripped out to make room for a cutting edge Nitrogen Ice Cream kitchen.
Why Use Nitrogen to Make Ice Cream?
Liquid Food Grade Nitrogen poured at -321 degrees Fahrenheit freezes the Ice Cream base in a matter of seconds. This prevents ice crystals from forming which is typically found in most commercial ice creams.
The quick freezing process leads to a creamy richer Ice Cream without the ice crystal or “overrun” (air pockets created in commercially made ice creams).
Just as important, each serving is unique to the ice cream connoisseur ordering it. Once you taste Cosmos ice cream made with Nitrogen there is no going back. Choose your flavor and mix-ins and take a ride to another flavor universe.
Back to the ocean, we go, as you stop by to meet John Newton and the crew from Henry’s kitchen, where you may enjoy fresh lobster delights, seasoned gulf shrimp, snow crab clusters, conch and some spicy wings for the landlubbers.
Kevin Watson’s Cool Yeti Shaved Ice Truck is a great place to stop for a refresher as you watch the Swamp Cowboys Alligator Wrestling, the Jungle Adventures Animal Exhibits, the Globe of Death Motorcycle Stunt Show or for a chat with Panama Pearl at her Pirate Encampment.
