To get a peek into how chefs like to eat when they're not at work is a special treat, especially when it's an Indian-American chef who's written a cookbook on the matter. Luckily, our next pop-up comes with such a "flavorwalla" to help you "bring the flavor" into your home kitchen no matter what the cuisine... Chef Floyd Cardoz!
We are so excited to announce that Flavorwalla Pizzeria is coming to Harry's Pizzeria in Miami's Design District Tuesday, April 12 at 7PM, featuring dishes (and a drink!) from Floyd's brand new cookbook. It publishes one week before the event!
Seating is first come, first served for this family-style meal at our neighborhood American pizzeria. Making new friends is encouraged and easy when you've got a welcome cocktail in hand with four passed snacks, four courses, and four free-flowing wines for the evening selected to play well throughout the menu. You get a gift to take home, a personally signed copy FLOYD CARDOZ: FLAVORWALLA: Big Flavor. Bold Spices. A New Way to Cook the Foods You Love (Artisan Books, April 5, 2016!!!) All that and tax and gratuity are included in the ticket price of $150, sold exclusively here. All sales are final.
Chef Cardoz is also planning his next New York restaurant, Paowalla, set to debut in New York City's Soho neighborhood in the summer. He's spent lots of time back in India over the past few years, reconnecting with his roots at home and opening The Bombay Canteen in Mumbai. His Instagram is a travelogue of exotic spices and street snacks, family recipes and meals shared at home. What a busy and exciting time to have him at Harry's, full of inspiration and new endeavours!
The chef says, "I have made my mark as a creator of bold, exciting food with balanced layers of flavors and textures that play off each other. And while I use fewer components when cooking at home than I do in my restaurants, the layers and balance of flavor and texture are the same."
Floyd is the winner of Top Chef Masters season 3, a four-time James Beard Award finalist, and the mastermind behind beloved New York City restaurants like the much-missed Tabla and the soon-to-open Paowalla. He is also a dad, a husband, and a passionate sports fan (Mets and Giants in case youre wondering - the man even designs certain recipes such that the hands-on portions can happen between innings / at half time!) who wants to eat as well at home as he does at his restaurants. His new book shows us how to get bold, restaurant-quality flavor at home. FLAVORWALLA is about amplifying the vibrancy and deliciousness of familiar dishes - from Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Zest and Mustard Seed to White Bean Salad with Pomegranate Pearls and Crushed Peanuts. Its organized according to occasion (Game Time, Dinner for Two, Summer Cooking, Weeknight Meals), and includes more than 100 approachable recipes.
Floyd attended culinary school and began his career in his native Bombay, India, where he recently opened the Bombay Canteen. Cardoz created the food for the feature film The Hundred-Foot Journey. He lives with his wife and two sons in northern New Jersey. Follow him on Instagram and Twitter @floydcardoz.
"Flavorwalla is one of the best cookbooks in recent memory, and its pure Floyd Cardoz, one of the most brilliant chefs working in America today. Floyd harnesses amazing tastes in even the simplest foods and utilizes seasonings and spices in truly unique ways. This is a book for all lovers of food, presented by a true master of his craft. Prepare to get your food game upped!"
