experiment #46 - Cobaya Diego at La Mar

Experiment #46 is in the books! This time around, we took a trip to Peru by way of Brickell Key, with Chef Diego Oka of Gaston Acurio's La Mar restaurant, where we had a perfect night out on the balcony overlooking Brickell and downtown Miami. You can see pictures here in this Cobaya Diego flickr set, and we'll update when recaps are posted recaps are up at Food For Thought and The Chowfather. Here's the menu Diego put together for us:

Scallop, Uni and Ikura Tiradito with Rocoto Leche de Tigre

Purple Potato Causa with Seared Tuna and Green Mango Chalaca Sauce

Smoked Crispy Sweetbreads with Aji Amarillo Potato Puree, Crispy Potatoes, Soft Egg and Chimichurri

Nigerian Prawn with Lobster Chupe, Quinoa Achupado, Fava Bean Air and Huacatay Sauce

Lobster Ceviche with Hot Leche De Tigre Broth and Crispy Yucca

Whole Fish Nikei with Soft Shell Crabs and Broccoli Rabe

Fried Rice with BBQ Pork Belly and Raw Egg

Peruvian Chocolate Mousse with Crispy Quinoa and Lucuma Bombe

A big thank you to Diego and all of his team at La Mar, and as always most of all, to the guinea pigs whose interest and support make these events possible.
