Taste of the Nation Miami

Over 40 restaurants participated in this event to raise funds for childhood hunger. Celebrity chefs in attendance included Chef Allen Susser and Govind Armstrong. David Bouley was absent but his crew proffered white chocolate flan with green tea gelee as a peace offering to satiate the masses.

Grass Restaurant's table (above) was packed as event goers snacked on duck confit on whole wheat crepes, warm goat cheese crumbles (below) with hydroponic arugula, and a rich banana bread pudding.

Event host Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne put out a dessert buffet to rival no other. People could not get enough of the chocolate apple saffron mousse cake, strawberry rubarb tarts and key lime macaroons.

Perfectly seared tuna from Blue Door at the Delano.
