Here’s a taste of what’s on tap today at the Beard House.
Global Table, Sunshine State, 7:00 P.M.
Hari and Jenneffer Pulapaka, Cress Restaurant, Deland, FL
Outside of operating Cress, their critically acclaimed Central Florida restaurant, powerhouse husband-and-wife team Hari and Jenneffer Pulapaka pursue ambitious careers as a professor of mathematics and a podiatric surgeon, respectively. The duo, however, is best known for their passionate advocacy for a better food system, and the delicious dishes they make in pursuit of it. Join us at the Beard House as they craft globally inspired, yet regionally grounded American cuisine that speaks to the promise of the land and sea, with plates like Betel Leaf–Wrapped Goat with Jerk Spices and Salsa Verde; Meyer Lemon, Ricotta, and Spinach Gnudi with Green Garbanzo Bean Hummus, Tomato Jam, and Spiced Almonds (get the recipe); and Florida Lion Fish with Smoked Creamed Corn, Florida Stone Crabs, Candied Chiles, Black Beans, and Cilantro. Just a few bites will have you dreaming as big as the Pulapakas about the delectable potential of the food of America's future.
