The Culinary Getaway: South Africa
The brainchild of International Hall of Fame golfer and award-winning vintner, Ernie Els, Big Easy Winebar & Grills serve sophisticated South African comfort food, with locations in Durban, Stellenbosch and Dubai. And now, Mike McLaurin is taking the reins as Executive Chef of their first U.S. property in the vibrant Brickell neighborhood of Miami. Throughout his gastronomic career, he’s cultivated extensive knowledge of international cuisines as well as wood-fired techniques and flavors, holding positions at Del Frisco’s Grille, Yardbird Southern Table and Bar and Bravo Cucina Italiana. He’s excited to bring his diverse background to Big Easy Miami to give guests an authentic taste of South African cuisine. The curries and steaks are must-haves, along with the Big Easy Signature Burger, Cape Malay Seafood Pot and the melt-in-your-mouth pork belly lollipop smothered in a sweet and spicy braai “bbq sauce”—that wowed guests at the SOBEWFF BACARDÍ Rum & Bass Beach Party featuring Walshy Fire. When he’s not cooking, McLaurin loves baking and spending time with his two daughters.
