Many thanks to all who joined us for our first "official" foray into Broward county for a Cobaya dinner with Market 17 in Fort Lauderdale. Chef Daniel Ramos and co-owner Kirsta Grauberger put together seven courses of food and wine that literally spanned the seven continents.
You can read my recap here on Food For Thought and see the pictures in this Cobaya 17 flickr set.
Incidentally, for those keeping track (and I don't know why anyone would), we are redubbing this one "experiment #17." We've had a few events that never got numbers - PodZilla, Cobaya Gras (which, it should be noted, was in Hollywood and thus our Broward incursion was not unprecedented), Paradigm Redux - so it only seems right.
