Chef Dean James Max Talks Wahoo

Chef Dean James Max of 3030 Ocean in Fort Lauderdale had a table set up at the Food & Wine Festival serving the best grub I tried in the whole place. I didn't know what the hell it was, so I waited around till Chef was done schmoozing his many fans and asked him about it. I still don't know how they did what they did with what they were serving, but maybe you do. Anyway, I don't care, it involved fresh, local fish, and it was great.

Side note - Chef Dean James Max is the current boss of Chef Paula DaSilva from Hell's Kitchen season 5.
