A cadre of notable South Florida chefs will put their best food forward at this year’s Chefs Up Front dinner, an annual fundraising event hosted by local non-profit Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition To Youth.  Chefs Up Front offers a rare and coveted dining opportunity for guests at 10 different tables to experience a delicious five-course signature meal prepared and presented table-side by 10 local chefs.  FLIPANY has expanded the popular event this year to include both The Biltmore in Miami/Coral Gables on August 9 and W Fort Lauderdale on August 23. Roxanne Vargas, host of NBC6’s Six in the Mix, will serve as emcee at The Biltmore Hotel hoted by Chef Gregory Pugin, and Ryan Phillips, morning meteorologist at the station, will emcee at the W Fort Lauderdale, hosted by Chef Carlos Jorge. In addition to the intimate dinner setting, each evening will feature a reception and silent auction.
