Equipped with cool breezes and sweeping views of Biscayne Bay, Verde at Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) will offer a special, pre-fixe menu that complements a mid-career retrospective of Nari Ward, titled Sun Splashed. Executive Chef Kaytlin Brakefield translates the artist’s vision of embracing various media channels with the recurrent use of found objects to represent his native Jamaica, including the ideas of migration and movement, urban space and vernacular traditions. In her translation, Chef Kaytlin constructed a menu that incorporates a traditional Jamaican ingredient, repurposes often ‘lost’ ingredients and references installations within the exhibit. To start, guests can enjoy the calabaza and corn soup with coconut milk, spiced pumpkin seeds and squash blossom chips, served tableside. As the main entrée, guests will have the oxtail ravioli, made from pasta scraps and the traditional Jamaican ingredient, oxtail, with brown butter and sage. The meal ends on a tropical, sweet note with rum bread pudding with mango sauce, repurposing day old bread and mango found in other dishes within the kitchen.
