Master chef and restauranteur Daniel Boulud touched down in Miami for the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, and we got him to dish on what inspires him in the kitchen, how his famous db Burger came to be, and what he cooks for his son.
“Classic cooking is sort of timeless,” said Daniel Boulud right before the start of his intimate, afternoon meal at Miami's db Bistro Moderne on the Saturday of the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Inspired by French culinary mastermind Roger Vergé of Moulin de Mougins, Boulud hosted the Vintage South of France Lunch as a tribute to his mentor and authentic French fare.
Boulud has been a pillar of not just French technique but the evolution of American gastronomy for over four decades. His two-Michelin-starred namesake restaurant Daniel in New York has bred many of today’s top toques. With his most recent openings in Las Vegas (db Brasserie) and Washington D.C (DBGB Kitchen & Bar), Boulud oversees 17 kitchens worldwide, from Montreal to Singapore. >>Read More
