The morning show personalities from Big 105.9 will be throwing down whatever recipes they wish, though the star of the dish has to be "meat." Yesterday Paul hinted that his offering will be decidedly Cuban, but Young Ron is staying mum. Last year, both gents attempted grouper and Ron's dish was the bigger loser.

Come hungry, not because you think the radio guys will be sharing their creations with you, but because the Lowes is providing all attendees with continental breakfast.

Sure it starts at the crack of dawn -- 6 a.m. to be exact -- and sure you'll probably freeze your coconuts off since the weather gods predict a high of 67 degrees, but you'll probably get a glimpse of celebrity guests, including Emeril Lagasse, Guy Fieri, and Norm MacDonald. (What? You didn't know the funnyman is a gourmand? Neither did we.)

There's only space for 300 of you, so get there early.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
