Jose Duarte, chef and owner of Taranta Restaurant, is the latest headliner in the Dine Boston Visiting Chef Program at the AIRMALL® at Boston Logan International (BOS).
The program brings the specialties of New England chefs to the airport restaurant for three months. It is located in Terminal E, before security.
“Chef Jose Duarte has created a spin-off of traditional southern Italian and Peruvian cuisine with tastes that have certainly intrigued and appealed to restaurant goers in the Boston area,” said Mike Caro, vice president of development for BAA Boston, developer of the AIRMALL®. “BAA Boston and Dine Boston are pleased to introduce his dishes to the traveling passengers through the Dine Boston Visiting Chef Program.”
Duarte, a Peruvian native, opened his restaurant in 2000 and was named Boston’s most gracious host by Stuff magazine in 2006 and 2007. His restaurant combines flavors from Southern Italy and Peru, using unique Peruvian ingredients. He also received the Green Business Award from the city of Boston in 2008 for his sustainability and green business practices.
The menu at Dine Boston will include pan-roasted mussels and an organic baby arugula salad; cassava root gnocchi with a Peruvian-style slow-braised “Chica de Jora” green lamb ragu with spicy shaved parmesan; macadamia-crusted Atlantic salmon filet over herbed risotto cake, Peruvian asparagus and a Pisco-Sicilian Blood orange with an organic Incan golden berries sauce; and dessert consisting of guava and ricotta mini-cannolis with pistachio brittle.
The Dine Boston Visiting Chef Program, founded by Dine Boston, allows renowned New England chefs to “moonlight” at the restaurant and create a special menu for visitors.
