A week-long fest beginning May 2 through May 8, 2011will feature the talents of top chefs preparing Asian feasts all over New York City. For example, Chef Masaharu Morimoto will be creating an 8-course Omakase Dinner (meaning chef’s choice) at his restaurant, featuring a cocktail hour plus paired wines from Germany. The event’s culinary council has Tadashi Ono, Pichet Ong, David Chang, Susur Lee, and many more of the top talents in the world coming together. Last year’s event completely sold out, as did Anita Lo’s kick-off dinner for 2011, so it is advisable to get tickets soon. See the website for full schedule of events and to purchase tickets. I got a taste of what’s in store recently at Baotique with a 12-course preview dinner prepared by Chef Michael Bao Huynh. Photo above are the super tasty Nem Nuong Rolls: grilled pork meatball and vermicelli, wrapped in lettuce and topped with Peanut Sauce. See more photos at this link.
