Norman Van Aken

Norman Van Aken

Hailed as the founding father of New World Cuisine and credited for coining the culinary term fusion, this Miami-based chef is an industry titan. His marriage of global cuisines earned him a spot on the James Beard list of “Who’s Who in American Food and Beverage.” Van Aken is the only Floridian to obtain that honor. Six cookbooks, a memoir, and a radio show still won’t keep this cook out of the kitchen. Find him just down the road at his Orlando restaurant, Norman’s.
