On any given day at Expo Milano, the first-ever food-focused world's fair that's now open in Milan, visitors can experience a veritable buffet of international cuisine, state-of-the-art technology and design, and delectable food-themed programming. Modeled after our own James Beard House in New York City, the USA Pavilion–affiliated James Beard American Restaurant pop-up at Expo Milano features different award-winning guest chefs every week.

A few weeks ago, diners were treated to world-renowned cuisine from JBF Award–winning chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park and the NoMad in New York City. As one of the most decorated chefs in the world (EMP just ranked number five on the highly coveted World's 50 Best Restaurants list), it's no surprise that Humm's tasting menu was a runaway success. To give you a taste of his work at JBAR, here's a peek at the lauded chef's "milk & honey" dish (pictured above). An innovative dessert built from honey–oat shortbread, dehydrated milk foam, honey brittle, milk ice, and buckwheat honey, it stood out an eye-catching (and delicious!) representation of modern American cuisine.

The USA Pavilion, themed "American Food 2.0," and Expo Milano will remain open through October.
