My Key West Kitchen is chef Van Aken's love letter to Key West, where he first found the passion to cook, and where the unique cultural makeup of the island influenced his cuisine today—from the 'little joints' of the island to the locals' home cooking—as well as recipes from Norman's past and present. The colorful stories behind the recipes make My Key West Kitchen essential reading both in and out of the kitchen.
Norman Van Aken is the Director of Restaurants of Miami Culinary Institute/'TUYO' and NORMAN'S at The Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lakes, Orlando.
Justin Van Aken, a culinary consultant and a chef as well, specializes in food preservation techniques and sustainability. Together they have formed Van Aken Consulting, Inc. Both authors split their time between Miami and Key West.
