(Susser, Allen) Following an extensive international education in classical cooking techniques, Chef Allen Susser chose Miami to blaze his own signature and forge his career. Adapting his training and technique in the creative inquisitive manner of a master and visionary, Chef Allen synthesized the essence of his adopted region. This fusion he sought would render a stimulating, satisfying and refreshing plate, but stand alone as a new Florida Cuisine. His dramatic translation of the bounty of South Florida’s foodstuffs became NEW WORLD CUISINE, an innovative signature and important contribution to American Culinary craftmanship. Today, the James Beard-winning Chef Allen continues to develop NEW WORLD CUISINE, which now draws equal and exciting strength from the Caribbean, Latin America and modern American influences.
