Chef David Pan Wins Flavor Award


The winning dish: Boeuf Bourguignon

Chef David Pan earned the Flavor Award at the Wharf Uncorked Food & Wine Festival in Orange Beach. As this chef’s style is traditional French cooking for current times, his winning dish was a Boeuf Bourguignon with Roasted Garlic Pomme Purée. Held in mid-September, the three day event combines tastings of delicious food and tantalizing wines, live entertainment, a pinch of southern flare and a dash of Gulf Coast hospitality.

“As flavor is the most important part of cuisine, it is quite an honor to win this particular award,” said Chef David Pan of Orange Beach Concierge. “Additionally, as sponsors for the entire festival, it is exciting to know that over $15,000 was raised for Make a Wish Alabama.”
