Testimonials

Allen Susser is a winner of the prestigious James Beard Award. He currently directs and oversees The Café at Books & Books in Coral Gables, Miami Beach and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. These are award-winning, full-service restaurants on-site at three of Mitchell Kaplan’s locally-based, independently-owned neighborhood bookshops.

 

Chef Allen’s cuisine is fresh and flavorful, like a tropical vacation on a plate. He has a passionate commitment to local, fresh ingredients. His personal culinary viewpoint has been established since 1986 upon opening Chef Allen’s as chef/owner of his groundbreaking Miami restaurant. The New York Times called Allen the “Ponce De Leon of New Florida cooking.” Food & Wine magazine named Chef Allen "One of the Best 10 Chefs in America". In 2000, Allen launched Chef Allen's Consulting a boutique restaurant and hospitality consulting firm - providing strategic initiative, culinary resources, and innovative direction for the industry.

 

Chef Allen is pioneering chocolate in St Lucia, West Indies.
His Emerald Estate Vintage Chocolate is authentically hand-crafting small batches of cacao beans, slow roasted and stone ground. The organically-grown cocoa beans are from the Emerald Estate on the volcanic hillsides by the edge of the rain forest.

 

Susser is currently the spokesman for the National Mango Board and is a Culinary Ambassador for the Monterey Bay Aquarium for its sustainable seafood watch. He received an honorary Doctorate of Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales University. And received the President's Award for community service from Florida International University. Allen was recognized as Chef of the Year for Share Our Strength and later was honored nationally as Humanitarian of the Year by Share Our Strength for his commitment to End Childhood Hunger. He is currently active on the Board of Feeding South Florida. Susser is an advisory member of the James Beard Foundation. He is the original author of New World Cuisine and Cookery (Doubleday, 1995), The Great Citrus Book (Ten Speed Press, 1997) and The Great Mango Book, (Ten Speed Press, 2001). All available at Books & Books!
