Get ready for an extraordinary culinary experience at the iconic Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami, where two culinary superstars, Andrew Zimmern and Chef Diego Oka, are joining forces for a unique and curated dining event.
Andrew Zimmern is not just any chef; he's an Emmy-winning and four-time James Beard Award-winning TV personality, chef, writer, teacher, and a passionate advocate for social justice. His expertise and influence in the culinary world are unmatched.
Chef Diego Oka, the Executive Chef at La Mar by Gaston Acurio at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami, is equally exceptional. He specializes in the flavors of iconic Peruvian cuisine, with a particular focus on ceviche, as well as exploring lesser-known dishes that showcase the multiculturalism and biodiversity of Peru. Diego is a true connoisseur of Peruvian culinary traditions.
When these two culinary maestros come together, you can expect nothing short of a gastronomic masterpiece. This match made in Miami, courtesy of SOBEWFF®, promises to be a delectable fusion of their culinary talents, creating an unforgettable dining experience. It's a culinary journey you won't want to miss.
