Tribute to Charlie Trotter at Normans Recap

Norman's at The Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes 
4012 Central Florida Parkway 
Orlando, FL 32837 
(407) 393- 4333

We proudly assisted, on Saturday 13th, to the "Tribute to Charlie Trotter" at Norman's, located inside the Ritz Carlton and we can only tell you that it was a five star event. As soon as you walked in you were welcomed by their friendly staff and greeted with a glass of champagne Perrier-Jouët, you also had the opportunity to bid on different items, which all proceeds went to benefit the "Trotter Project" foundation, all this with a piano player in the background. There were different food stations by Norman's chefs: shrimp ceviche paired with tequila, iberico ham and delicious cheeses, different types of caviar with stone crab claws , oysters and vodka, and  Australian Wagyu Ribeye paired with red wine. Servers were offering canapes throughout the event, all of them freshly prepared by famous chefs from The Ravenous PigLuma on Park and Prato, The Rusty Spoon and The Flying Fish Cafe, among others.

 

 Our favorite canapes were: the Rabbit and Black Trumpet Mushroom Boudin, Hog's Head Crostini, and the Slow Roasted Barbecued Pork Belly. They also had wine, cigars and cognac stations on the outside of the restaurant, accompanied by John Rivers, who was offering a full roasted pig. The decoration of the place was simple but elegant and the staff was more than friendly, the chefs were easy to approach and they gladly answered any questions you had.

 

You are probably wondering... what about desserts? They had their own room, which we loved. Chefs from the Ritz Carlton and Norman's set up a table with different sweet treats, all of them prepared to perfection and paired with Champagne Laurent-Perrier demi sec from France. They also offered ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, a very cool experience because they prepared it to order, right in front of you!

 

This event was beyond what we were expecting, food was excellent and paired perfectly with drinks, staff could not have been friendlier and most important, everybody was having a good time enjoying the atmosphere and good company. What we loved the most was seeing all the chefs working together in one kitchen and above all for a great cause. 
We can not wait until next year! For the full menu and more details visit http://orlandodine.com/blog/tribute-charlie-trotter/

Thank you to everybody who made this event possible!!
