Second Harvest Food Bank presents: Chef's Night

Featuring 1921 by Norman Van Aken

Chef's Night with 1921 by Norman Van Aken The award-winning restaurant 1921 by Norman Van Aken in Mount Dora is a celebration of modern Florida cuisine and eclectic artisans all fused with respect for traditional craftsmanship, community and the region’s culinary diversity. The restaurant was created as a partner to the adjacent Modernism Museum setting the stage for a distinctive destination that nourishes the spirit and soul.

“Before the celebrity chef craze… before the start of Food Network, Norman Van Aken was starting a revolution. He was doing something unheard of at the time, taking local ethnic flavors, merging them together at restaurants where he worked.” --- The Smith-sonian

What is Chef's Night? Chef's Night is an evening at the food bank featuring some of Central Florida's best chefs and cuisine, all to benefit our Darden Foundation Community Kitchen's Culinary Training Program. Our Culinary Training Program provides qualified, at-risk and economically disadvantaged adults with the culinary and life skills training needed to pursue a sustainable career in the food industry.
