"Laissez les bons temps rouler!" Celebrate Mardis Gras as the Summit welcomes John Meisler, Global Ambassador & Executive Chef for Don Q Puerto Rican Rums. February 2, 2013

The Summit is pleased to welcome John Meisler, an acclaimed speaker, educator and brewmeister. For years John has experimented with the flavors found in spirits, wines and beers as base ingredients and accent spices in preparing epicurean delights.

Join us as Chef Meisler shares his family's old Creole recipes with a little Lagniappe ("a little something extra" as they say in N'Awlins). Each of the courses will be prepared with Meisler's favorite spice rack -Don Q Puerto Rican Rum - and exquisitely paired with a Mardi Gras Cocktail Creation.

You will have the chance to learn about the rums of the Caribbean, savor the wonderful flavors that are created from aging in oak whiskey barrels, and revel in how these exquisite rums create an experience that will make your mouth want to get up and celebrate.

After the demonstration, guests will go to the Summit to enjoy five different dishes and taste the rum cocktail specifically chosen for each dish. Meet Chef Meisler, taste his incredible cuisine and get a mini book of his recipes to take home!

Mardi Gras music and colorful beads await you as we kick off the evening with a Don Q Tropical Hurricane at the Demonstration Theatre between 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The demonstration will start at 6:30 p.m.
