James Beard Foundation Dinner

By popular demand, Dean James Max returned to the James Beard House on April 15th to host his much loved Beard House Dinner, ‘Dean James Max and Friends.’ The dinner is a collaborative offering by chefs from each of his destination restaurants across the globe. This year’s feast included samplings from Daniel Hawrylak of Amp 150, Clevelend; David MacLennan of James Republic, Long Beach; Pushkar Marathe of the Pink Sands Resort, Harbor Island, Bahamas; Christopher Molyneux of Parallel Post, Trumbell, CT; Brad Phillips of Asador at the Renaissance Hotel, Dallas; and proudly, our very own Pastry Chef Soledad Nizzero of the Brasserie, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.

This unique and highly sought after dining experience began with an assorted presentation of hors d’oeuvres including seared scallops with deeply flavorful Sea Island red pea stew, tarragon and fresh parsley puree, as well as stunning fire-roasted Copps Island oysters with preserved Meyer lemon butter, Benton’s bacon and delicately shaved pecorino. Alongside these delights were fluke crudo, Spring pea-cumin soup and spiced Connecticut lamb fritters with spicy Serrano-mint chutney.

Dinner blended together each chef’s unique palate and experiences to form the sort of combined satisfaction you get when only great artists, dedicated to their trade, are at work. The meal was introduced with asparagus with creamy buttermilk-parmesan crème anglaise, Amish egg Bottarga and speck.  Culinary senses opened, this was followed by intricately hand rolled cauliflower agnolotti with Uni, tender Caribbean fish cakes, and braised Texas antelope short rib alongside a piece of rib-eye grilled just perfectly.

Honored to take her place at the finale, Chef Sole brought a bit of the Caribbean to New York through the presentation of her Cayman Islands Aged Rum Cake with South Sound coconut mousse, Pimiento-Cayman honey syrup, and Cayman fruit compote. There was no doubt that Sole took guests on a journey right to the bright, powdery shores of Grand Cayman through this dish. The kick of the aged rum mellowed by the sweet coconut mousse and golden glaze of Otto’s honey was just sharpened enough by the tropical compote. Like a dream sequence, it was beautiful, staggered and in-tune all at once, the ideal ending to this culinary journey.
