Python for dinner? Why not!

Python, wild boar and lion fish will be on the menu this weekend in Miami.

Three local chefs will participate Saturday night in a cook-off competition using the invasive species as key ingredients. With no natural predators, these invasive species disrupt the local ecology. The goal is to raise awareness about how the animals impact South Florida's ecology - and perhaps even generate an appetite for them.

Todd Erickson, executive chef of Haven Gastro-Lounge; Bradley Herron, chef de cuisine of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, and Timon Balloo, executive chef of Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill will compete for the title of “Best Invasivore Chef.” The cooking fest will begin at 8 p.m. Saturday at Villa 221, at 221 NE 17th St., Miami. “I think this will be fun and I’m very excited to see what Timon and Bradley do,” Erickson said. “Some good food is going to come out of it.”

Funds will also be raised for Fertile Earth Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to promoting environmental awareness.
