Iron Chef fans can ring in the holiday season with Masaharu Morimoto himself during the “12 Beers of Christmas” event at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs on Dec. 2, 2018.
Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto will host the first annual “12 Beers of Christmas” at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs on Sunday, Dec. 2. The event will feature multiple stations of holiday-themed beers from local breweries including Crooked Can Brewing Company, Rogue Ales, Coppertail Brewing Company, Redlight Redlight, Bowigens, Cask & Larder, Red Cypress, 3 Daughters, Baird Brewing, Hourglass Brewing, and Motorworks Brewing. Pairings of Pan-Asian bites will include okonomiyaki, takoyaki, yakisoba, yakitori, gyoza, various dim sum, raw bar varieties, and multiple types of ramen and sushi.
Chef Morimoto will personally host the event and be on hand to autograph his newest cookbook, Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking, which will be available for purchase. All proceeds from the cookbook sales will be donated to Give Kids The World Village. Located in Central Florida, Give Kids The World is an 84-acre, nonprofit resort built exclusively to serve critically-ill children – and their families – who are visiting Florida on weeklong “wish trips.”
“We are so excited to welcome breweries from across Florida to Morimoto Asia for this event as we raise funds for Give Kids the World,” said Kyle Collins, Director of Marketing, Patina Restaurant Group. “Chef Morimoto is a big fan of the craft beer movement and pairing his cuisine with beer. He’s thrilled to host such a fun afternoon.”
“12 Beers of Christmas” will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2018, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m at Morimoto Asia in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs. The cost is $55 per person all-inclusive, with tax and gratuity. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.
