Chef Allen Susser: A Q&A on Flavors of Fort Lauderdale, GMOs, and Robot Fish

Chef Allen Susser has made a bit of a name for himself in south Florida. Okay, that might be a bit of an understatement.

The New York native and longtime South Florida resident has won numerous awards and accolades: James Beard Foundation's Best Chef 1994, southeast region; one of the top ten in Food & Wine Magazine's top 10 New Chef's in America. He was deemed "a New World Marvel" by Time Magazine; The New York Times called him "the Ponce de Leon of New Florida Cooking"; he received an honorary doctorate from Johnson & Wales University.

And that's not even the full list. I think we can say he's had some success.

Chef Allen chatted with us about Flavors of Fort Lauderdale, his sustainable seafood efforts, and more.
