PALM BEACH – When will you have the opportunity to enjoy the cooking art of 4 well-known chefs that work together to present to you a World of Ceviche’s or related dishes in a sophisticated yet lay-back environment? Well, it’s about to happen. Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino invites you to their Ceviche Pop-Up Event coming Friday and Saturday.
Ceviche is the pseudonym for Sea & Summer. A magical dish that originated in one country but couldn’t have existed without the contributions of another. The original Ceviche was born in Peru, but travelled around the world to clone in many more delicious versions. Fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices like lemon or lime and spiced with chili peppersforms the base. However, the 4 cooking magicians that roll up their sleeves for you this weekend have their own interpretation linked to their country of origin. You can taste 12 different versions of ceviche or related dishes, each chef presents its trio of plates with each their own character. Dive into this culinary experience and taste the quality of the chefs and the diversity of ceviche.
Teddy Bouroncle is from Peru and it may not come in as a surprise that his favorite dish is the ceviche. He is working for Marriott Aruba for years already, now as Director Food & Beverage Operations, Previous as Complex Executive Chef. “To bring the flavors of Ceviche to Aruba is the idea of this event. All over the world they prepare Ceviche and each bring in their own taste and variation. The chefs chose their own 3 Ceviche’s to prepare. I will make the Tiradito with scallops, avocado and capers among others and the Classic Ceviche as well as the popular Anticucho with octopus and kombu chimichurri.”
Ever de Peña is the Complex Executive Sous Chef (Complex refers to all three adjacent Marriott properties – Aruba Marriott Resort, Ocean Club, and Surf Club) and originally from Venezuela, but he grew up in Aruba. His contribution to the unique event will have the Aruban touch. “My style is to use as many local ingredients as possible. I am also the one that presents the Vegan Ceviche. I will use the Pica de Papaya and Ciboyo tempera in one of my dishes.”
Rodrigo Torres from Mexico is the Executive Chef in- Zadún, Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Los Cabos. “I was invited to this event by Teddy and met Ever and Romeo here in Aruba. I think we will have a lot of fun also. From my part I will add a little bit of Mexico, the part I am from is the Northern part where seafood is used a lot; Baja California, so Ceviche is part of my eating culture. Hamache Aguachile with green apple, sea beans, avocado and cucumber is one of my dishes. An Octopus Taco is my Mexican surprise and I prepare the Tuna Tostada with ponzu and chitake mushrooms.”
The original Argentinean Romeo Penacino works as Complex Executive Chef for Marriott Aruba. He will take care of the bit extraordinary dishes like the Afrodisiac Ceviche with red snapper, octopus, calamari, shrimp, sea urchin, rocoto and scallops. Tuna Nikkei Tiradito and the Lobster Causa are his other surprises. “My variations are outspoken, you need to try them.”
The four make up for a strong team and trigger the curiosity to test your taste buds as this event is not something you can experience every day. “A perfect night for a family, group of friends or group of colleagues. Make sure you arrange your reservation as there are limited seats.”
