CORAL GABLES, FLA. (WSVN) - Carnaval Miami gave participants a chance to put their talents in the kitchen to the test, Tuesday night, and two members of 7’s family saw it all go down.

Culinary students and members of the public challenged each other to come up with tasty new recipes in Carnaval Miami’s Cooking Contest.

The event took place at La Palma Ristorante in Coral Gables. 7News anchor Belkys Nerey and Today in Florida anchor Alex de Armas participated as judges.
