Top Chefs Serve up the Best of International Cuisine at Taste of the World

The sport of kings and fine dining go hand in hand

Bobby Flay

The food, fashion, and fun on the Breeders’ Cup sidelines is almost as exciting as what’s happening on the racetrack. With celebrities, pro athletes, and jet-setters in the audience, it’s no wonder big-name chefs are getting in on the action. Bobby Flay, Jeffrey Strauss, and Brian Malarkey have aquired a taste for the races.

Bobby Flay is a familiar face at the Breeders’ Cup. His horse, More Than Real, won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf at Churchill Downs in 2010. He says of his win: "When it comes to life moments, it’s up there pretty high. I mean: my daughter Sophie, getting a great review in The New York Times for my restaurant, winning a Breeders’ Cup."

Brian Malarkey

Pamplemousse Grill owner Jeffrey Strauss, who’ll be cooking up a storm in the Trackside Chalet, is no stranger to the horse racing community. He and his partners have bought into several horses over the years, including the appropriately named stallion The Pamplemousse. "We bought eight horses in the beginning, including 20 percent of The Pamplemousse. If I’m going to lose my shirt in the horse business, I might as well get some advertising out of it."

Brian Malarkey of Herb & Wood in Little Italy will be showing off his culinary skills at the Breeders’ Cup event A Taste of the World. "I love to entertain and facilitate opportunities for people to create memories, share family stories, laugh together, and just celebrate their relationships. Helping them to do this—over good food and cocktails—is the most rewarding part of my job."

 

A Taste of the World

The highly anticipated A Taste of the World celebration, now in its seventh year, brings together Breeders’ Cup World Championships guests and top chefs from around the globe. This exclusive private event features American dishes crafted by Brian Malarkey of San Diego’s Herb & Wood, British culinary creations from Aaron Thomas of Salt & Whiskey at the Horton Grand Hotel, New Zealand fare by Lionfish San Diego chef Jose “JoJo” Ruiz, German bites from Martin Woesle of Mille Fleurs in Rancho Santa Fe, Chilean cooking by Brian Huskey of Tackle Box in Corona Del Mar, Canadian cuisine by Jason McLeod of Ironside Fish & Oyster Bar in San Diego, and more.
