The Vagabond Restaurant & Bar’s Executive Chef Alex Chang and South Florida’s very own famed, Chef Norman Van Aken are teaming up to create a series of four monthly dinners at MiMo’s Vagabond Restaurant & Bar, to showcase signature dishes from four distinct corners of the world, including Mexico, Japan, Peru, and India. Together, Chang and Van Aken will present a unique collaboration to create classic dishes from these four diverse destinations, while incorporating their respective cooking techniques.
The first Four Corners of the World dinner will kick-off on Cinco de Mayo and will present one-of-a-kind signature dishes from Mexico that the chefs have carefully created to bring the complex flavors of the region to life. For the debut of the dinner series, Van Aken will dish out an inventive twist on traditional Mexican fare, utilizing components, such as an ancho chile jam and tamale stuffing and an ancho-tamarind glazed roasted quail, where his signature fusionist style will resonate within each creation. Chang’s eclectic take on the menu will combine classic Mexican ingredients like pork chicharrón, ayocote bean, and habanero pepper, with bold flavors, such as sal de gusano, an Oaxacan spice made from sea salt, toasted agave worms, and chile costeño.
The first Four Corners of the World event will take place on Cinco de Mayo (May 5th) and will offer two seating options, at 7:00pm and 9:30pm, with two prix-fixe menus priced at either $130 per person for food only or $190 per person with food and wine pairing. Chef Norman Van Aken’s new book My Key West Kitchen, will also be available for purchase and signing. Reservations for “Four Corners of the World” can be made by clicking here.
