Back by popular demand, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto will present holiday-themed beers and gourmet pan-Asian light bites at Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs during the highly-anticipated second annual “12 Beers of Christmas” event.
The event will take place on Sunday, Dec. 8, from 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Tickets are $64++ per person. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend. In celebration of the craft-beer movement and the most wonderful time of the year, attendees will enjoy 12 specialty beers from local breweries all across Central Florida, such as Crooked Can Brewing Company and Rogue Ales. The brews will be paired with Morimoto Asia’s famous pan-Asian cuisine from 12 food stations.
Morimoto himself will host the event and will be autographing copies of his cookbook Mastering the Art of Japanese Home Cooking.
The cookbook will be sold at the event, with proceeds going to Give Kids the World Village, a nonprofit resort for critically ill children and their families who visit Florida on their “wish trips.”
“We’re delighted to bring back 12 Beers of Christmas this year to Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs and donate a portion of proceeds to our local charity of choice, Give Kids The World. The fan-favorite event will be hosted for the second year in a row by none other than our namesake, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto himself,” said Patina Restaurant Group Marketing Director Kyle Collins.
