Celebrate Florida with the WPBT2 premier of ¡Buen Provecho! Florida’s Spanish Flavor

WPBT2 will take viewers on a delicious journey through Florida’s culinary past with ¡Buen Provecho! Florida’s Spanish Flavor premiering Sunday, June 30 at 7:00 p.m.  The one hour documentary explores Florida’s Spanish roots through its cuisine, while blending historical narrative with delicious recipes and vibrant locations.  The documentary will premiere in celebration of the 500th anniversary of Ponce De Leon’s arrival in Florida.

Five centuries ago, Ponce de Leon arrived in “La Florida,” followed by Spanish explorers, settlers, and immigrants who would leave a lasting legacy of Hispanic influence.   Hosted by James Beard award-winning chef and restaurateur, Michelle Bernstein, the documentary reveals these influences from the early conquistadors who brought seeds, spices and livestock to the wave of immigration from Spanish colonies in the Caribbean, infusing a distinctly Latin Flavor to Key West and Tampa to the more recent explosion of South American culture evident in the streets of Miami today.
