Hosted by the Miami New Times as a kickoff to Miami Spice every July, The Iron Fork is an annual food event based around a competition between two local chefs. Both chefs are given a basket of ingredients with a secret component in which they duke it out to declare an Iron Fork champion.

Abundant restaurants and vendors are involved, serving samples to the attendees and spectators of the battle. Live music is available and it is similar to a cocktail party. People dress to impress and hold this event to high regards, so it is definitely not something to miss.
