Cooking up a win

Meet Dayanny De La Cruz, the Dominican chef heading Super Bowl LIV’s cuisine

Chef Dayanny will be cooking up all the delicious eats at 2020 Super Bowl in Miami, FL

If there is one thing we know, it’s that Super Bowl LIV in the tropical city of Miami, FL, will be the NFL’s most delicious one yet.

In 2020, the Hard Rock Stadium located in Miami will be hosting millions of people descending onto Miami looking to celebrate their team’s victory — and Centerplate chef Dayanny de la Cruz will be feeding them all!

As the executive chef for the stadium, she oversees not only the menu for the big event, but making sure that everything has that special Latino sazón (then again, it’s in Miami, so we expect nothing less).

This Dominican #bosschica will be making sure that fans have a full pancita as Latinx Queens  Jennifer Lopez  and  Shakira  take to the Pepsi Halftime Show stage.
