Dos Caminos' Executive Chef Ivy Stark in Fort Lauderdale Tonight for Book Signing

Ivy Stark, executive chef for Dos Caminos.
Last night, Dos Caminos, located inside the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel, hosted a free dinner for the media with executive chef Ivy Stark at the helm. Stark is responsible for the menu at all six Dos Caminos locations (four are in New York and the other is in Las Vegas) and spends most of her time in NYC. She is in Fort Lauderdale this week promoting her cookbook, Dos Caminos: Mexican Street Food.

Local media were given gratis tastings of some of Stark's favorite food and drink recipes from the book, and an opportunity to talk to the chef about the recently released tome. Stark will host a reception and book signing from 5 to 7 tonight at the restaurant. Photos of the food and details about the recipes after the jump:

The first course was guacamole, three kinds of salsa, and freshly made tortilla chips. In addition to avocados, Stark's version includes cilantro leaves, white onion, two teaspoons of minced jalapeno chiles, salt, plum tomatoes, and lime juice.
Street Salad with Honey-Citrus-Jalapeno Vinaigrette with baby romaine lettuce, navel oranges, jicama, mango, cucumber, red papaya, pineapple, and cilantro leaves.

Plantain-stuffed Chipotle Chiles with goat cheese and chipotle morita chiles. Stark picked up this recipe in Mexico City at El Centro Culinario Ambrosia.
