Tag: Executive chef Paula DaSilva

Recently named one of “The Best New Restaurants in America” by Esquire, 1500° at Eden Roc is South Florida’s premier dining destination for fresh farm-to-table cuisine. Executive chef Paula DaSilva works regularly with growers and farmers to ensure that the ever-changing menu at 1500° features fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. In celebration of the arrival of Florida’s growing season, DaSilva, along with an array of her favorite growers, will host an Early Harvest Dinner at the restaurant on Thursday, November 3, 2011 at 7:00 p.m.

For the 5-course dining experience, DaSilva will turn the bountiful harvest from each grower into fresh and exciting dishes, paired with infused spirits and wines. The menu will incorporate ingredients from Paradise Farms Organic; White Water Clams; Palmetto Creek Farms; Jackman Ranch; Swank Specialty Produce; Hani’s Mediterranean Organics; Maggie Pons; Lake Meadow’s Naturals; Seriously Organic and Teena’s Pride. According to Gabrielle Marewski of Paradise Farms, "I'm very excited for Paradise Farms Organic to be participating in this first farmers dinner at 1500°. Chef Paula’s menu deliciously represents the diversity of our local agriculture!" Between courses, farmers will speak about the menu – as it relates to their harvests – and will be available to answer any questions.
