Funky Buddha brews pair with Salute dishes

On Jan. 27, Salute Market (5530 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens), now focusing on the restaurant and bar, will offer a Funky Buddha Key Takeover, meaning four craft beers will be paired with bar dishes. Funky Buddha’s Brian Torres joined forces with Salute’s Executive Chef Mario Santo-Domingo, and here are the results: Pineapple Blonde Ale with Salmon Crudo; Floridian Hefeweizen with Kale/Farro Salad; Hop Gun IA with Moroccan Spiced Chicken Sausage, Nikolai Vorlauf Imperial Stout with Flourless Chocolate Cake. All of this is $24 for the flights and bites.

Slow Food Miami and Swank Farm join for memorable meal

Put some Slow Food Miami peeps with Swank Farms dishes, and you’ve got yourself a road trip to a heck of a meal. On Jan. 31, slow foodies will board a bus at 2 p.m. at The Wynwood Yard (56 NW 29th St., Miami) to truck to Swank Farm heaven in Loxahatchee. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., they will celebrate the Chinese New Year with “The Year of the Monkey Dinner,” which features lemongrass beef with Thai sausage and precious jade Swank greens, floating moon yellowtail snapper, dragon thunder pork short ribs and more. The chefs are Aaron Brooks (EDGE Steak & Bar), Alex Chang (Vagabond Restaurant & Bar), Adonay Tafur (The Dutch) and Max Santiago (The Salty Donut).  Cost is $160 for the dinner, plus $25 for the charter bus, but the meal will be priceless, and proceeds benefit Slow Food Miami.
