Whether he is preparing food in his farm-to-table restaurant, Panga, located in Panama, or cooking at a summer party in the Hamptons, Chef Andrés Morataya has a unique beach-friendly approach to cooking that diners love. He goes ‘back to basics’ and builds a grill with bricks and driftwood. Morataya initially was forced to do that because of financial constraints when he opened his restaurant. However, using the homemade grill has now become part of his signature style. It helps to create a unique dining experience that guests remember forever. Morataya will soon be displaying his unique cooking style at Chris Burch’s Nihi Sumba Island resort in Indonesia. Hop over to tastingtable.com for an interesting and related article
