Eye Candy: Ecuadorian Shrimp Ceviche at Chefs & ChampagneHilary Deutsch
August 10, 2015
At last month's 25th anniversary of Chefs & Champagne®, our annual summer tasting party in the Hamptons, we honored television personality, chef, and cookbook author Carla Hall with flowing Champagne Taittinger, the wines of Wölffer Estate Vineyard, and delectable culinary offerings from a select group of over 40 celebrated chefs. During our much-anticipated fête, chefs Sam Hazen and Luis Jaramillo of New York City's Atlantic Grill and Blue Water Grill served a gorgeous riff on Ecuadorian ceviche: plump shrimp topped with toasted quinoa and bright microgreens, all surrounded by a pool of light tomato water. Incredibly vibrant and refreshing, these little bowls of goodness were a welcome respite from the summer heat.
