THE KITCHEN AT THE 30TH MIAMI BOOK FAIR INTERNATIONAL

30TH BOOK FAIR INTERNATIONAL

Thirty years of Miami Book Fair International is a testament to the great things that can be accomplished when many people unite to create something bigger than themselves.

Each year more than 400 authors from around the globe come to Miami to take part in the fair’s international Festival of Authors. Writers come from all over the United States, and in previous years, the Fair has welcomed authors from countries like Argentina, Bosnia, Brazil, Canada, China, Cuba, Dominican Republic, England, France, Finland, Guatemala, Haiti, Hong Kong, Israel, Ireland, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Philippines, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Trinidad, and other nations.

The Miami Book Fair is more than a great festival, it’s a community brought together by shared passions — a passion for books and reading, and for making South Florida a great place to live, work, play and learn.

RIGHT THIS WAY

VIP Dinner with Norman Van Aken and Scott Conant

Tuyo Restaurant – 415 N.E. Second Avenue Miami fl. 33132

Right This Way pairs Norman Van Aken, author of No Experience Necessary: The Culinary Odyssey of Chef Norman Van Aken and Scott Conant, author of The Scarpetta Cookbook, for a one-of-a kind dinner from these one-of-a kind chefs. Reception with authors prior to dinner at 7:30 p.m.  Dinner at 8 p.m.

Norman Van Aken memoir No Experience Necessary: The Culinary Odyssey of Chef Norman Van Aken (Taylor Trade Publishing; $24.95) spans twenty-plus years and nearly as many jobs—including the fateful job advertised in the local paper for a short-order cook: “no experience necessary.” The story takes readers from the graveyard shift at an all-night barbeque joint to a James Beard award finalist for best restaurant in America. Van Aken, considered one of the founders of New America cuisine, is the Chef and Director of Restaurants at The Miami Culinary Institute as well as the Chef-Owner of Norman’s at the Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lake, Orlando.

Scott Conant opened Scarpetta in New York in 2008 to rave reviews and an enthusiastic following that has established him as one of the country’s preeminent Italian chefs.  He’s a regular on Food Network shows such as Chopped and on Bravo’s Top ChefThe Scarpetta Cookbook (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; $30.00) features 125 signature dishes from one of the best restaurants in the country.
