My colleague Heather McPherson at the Orlando Sentinel has written a very nice tribute to chef Norman Van Aken's 10 years in Orlando.

This weekend, some of the best chefs from around the world are gathering to celebrate his anniversary.

Many South Floridians know Van Aken from his now gone Coral Gables restaurant.
