Some of the most popular chefs from across South Florida treated guests to the best seat in the house at the annual Out of the Kitchen in the St. Regis Bal Harbour. The culinary maestros each had their own chef’s table and simultaneously prepared a specially crafted surprise gourmet three-course dinner for their 12 adventurous diners. Bravo TV “Top Chef” Alum Sam Talbot returned once again this year to host along with CBS Miami Entertainment and Lifestyle Reporter Lisa Petrillo. Proceeds will benefit the cure-focused work of the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.
Co-chairing the event were Amy and Scott Greenwald and Tammy and Steve Klein. The Greenwalds and the Kleins both have daughters living with type 1 diabetes and will stop at nothing until a cure is found. The evening started with a cocktail reception featuring pop-up restaurants from LILT Lounge at EPIC Hotel, and DK Culinary Ventures, raffles, a live auction featuring exclusive getaways and TV show tickets, and more.
