Next week, Tampa native and chef Gary Moran leads a culinary demonstration while guests down signature cocktails that complement his tasting menu.

It's all part of the four-night Simmer & Sift, which begins at 6 p.m. June 27. Hosted annually at the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St. Pete, the annual culinary series allows locals to explore the region's food scene throughout multiple dining experiences.

Locally, Moran has commanded the kitchens of Tampa's Datz and Mermaid Tavern, alongside his late Southern-inflected restaurant, Wimauma. Now the chef is cooking on the other side of the bay at Callaloo — newly located inside The Deuces' historic Manhattan Casino — where he mixes Caribbean cuisine and traditional Southern fare.
