Cayman Cookout: I Love New York with Daniel Humm (Cayman Islands)

The first Cayman Cookout event that I attended was one of the best and most memorable of the entire trip — Chef Daniel Humm’s I Love New York demo on the beach. The weather was cloudy and rainy, but that didn’t matter at all. Chef Humm captivated me with stories about growing up in Switzerland, his passion for New York and local ingredients, and, of course, his delicious food! We enjoyed spicy & refreshing yellow Bloody Marys and a savory warm bread salad, all made with fresh tomatoes from New Jersey. (Gotta love those Jersey tomatoes — they are pretty incredible!) :)  It was so much fun learning about the musical inspiration at Eleven Madison Park (Miles Davis) and at The NoMad (The Rolling Stones). How awesome is that! He told us that he and his team recently revamped the menu at EMP — I can’t wait to check it out! Chef Humm’s food is always exciting, innovative, beautiful, and absolutely delicious. A big thank you to Chef Daniel Humm and Chef Connie Chung for a wonderful demo!
