cuisines. Her specialty is a healthy mix of Caribbean, southern and Latin cuisine. Chin is known in mainstream circles for beating Bobby Flay of the Food Network Channel's Throwdown! with Bobby Flay. She won with her traditional Escoveitch Fish. Spice It Up Miami is a monthly culinary event that takes place at the Caribbean

Marketplace, located at Little Haiti Cultural Complex (5925 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami). According to events organizer, Marie Louissaint, it “is the place to be for food lovers who are looking for a memorable night that showcases the local and international flavors of food, dance and music that is Miami."

On June 9, Chef Sheron showed off her diverse skills. There was curry chicken, salad with apples and cranberries, and ice tea with ginger ale. The treat did not end there, as guests were taught how to make soul food sushi with jerk chicken, mango, avocado, collard greens and sun-dried tomato rolls. Then, guests were served jerk chicken with bonita mash and collard greens. Heavenly! To top it all off, there was bourbon-infused banana pudding. The interactive experience was fun and pleasurable. The entertainment of dancers and limbo contest made the evening a wonderful experience. Spice It Up Miami! is held every second Friday at 7:00 pm. It is sponsored by Woodford Reserve, Chefs of the Caribbean, Presidente Beer and the Little Haiti Cultural Complex.”
