Johnny's Key Lime Cake Recipe

I met Johnny at The Aspen Food & Wine Event many, many years ago. We see each other once a year in Aspen and spend all day together for 8 long days. He works hard cooking and managing one of the 4 stages. He used to party hard, so hard that he broke his leg one year dancing. He doesn't do that anymore. Now we go to dinner instead.

When he is not doing cooking events he is Executive Chef at the Gourmet Grocer Norman Brothers Produce in the Miami area.

When I asked Johnny for a recipe he responded with three! He chose "family" recipes, the ones that say "holiday". The coolest one he sent is a copy of his grandmother's recipe "burned" onto a piece of wood by his sister. What a cool way to share and pass on a recipe!
