Chef Chat With Emily El­lyn

Where Orlando - - Where Now -

“We have a melt­ing pot of fla­vor that give us the op­por­tu­nity to eat a dif­fer­ent dish ev­ery night of the year.”

You might rec­og­nize her from Food Net­work’s “Cup­cake

Wars,” “Food Net­work Star” and “Cut­throat Kitchen.” Emily

El­lyn is hard to for­get with those cat- eye glasses, plat­inum

blonde hair and ‘50s glam­our. She loves walk­ing Or­lando’s

main streets for lo­cally roasted cof­fee, craft cock­tails and

lo­cal beer and vis­it­ing the city’s di­verse neigh­bor

hoods for Peru­vian dishes, Viet­namese cui­sine

and Ethiopian fare. “We have a melt­ing pot of

fla­vor that gives us the op­por­tu­nity to eat a

dif­fer­ent dish ev­ery night of the year,” she

says. “We are one of the most di­verse

food cities in the world.” Not only is

Or­lando’s palate di­verse, but lo­cal pro

duce like grape­fruit, oranges, ava­cado

and Zell­wood Farms corn are ripe

and ready to give din­ers a

true taste of Florida.
