Miami is no stranger to hurricanes, and when Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast last week, thousands of businesses and residents were left struggling for survival. In an effort to provide relief for the victims of ‘Sandy’, chef Andrew Carmellini and his team at The Dutch at W South Beach Hotel & Residences have teamed up with Cobaya – Gourmet Guinea Pigs, the organizers of Miami’s premier underground dining events, to gather renowned Miami chefs and businesses to join them in a five-course dinner and silent auction taking place Sunday, November 18, 2012.
Priced at $250 per person all-inclusive, the special evening will bring together some of our region’s most notable chefs including Antonio Bachour, Michelle Bernstein, Aaron Brooks, Jeremiah Bullfrog, Richard Gras, Brad Kilgore and Andrew Zimmern’s AZ Canteen joined by The Dutch’s stellar culinary team, chef de cuisine Conor Hanlon, pastry chef Josh Gripper and head bartender Rob Ferrara. Guests can expect signature dishes and chef favorites for each course, expertly paired with wine and cocktails.
The evening starts at 7:00 p.m. with cocktails by BarLab and The Dutch’s Rob Ferrara and canapés in the lush Grove at W South Beach followed by dinner on The Terrace at The Dutch. Guests can expect a silent auction featuring an array of items from a two-night stay at the W South Beach in a luxury VIP suite, to autographed cookbooks and dinner certificates, as well as the opportunity to rally alongside these renowned chefs for this precious cause. All Proceeds from the dinner and silent auction will go directly to NYC Food Flood, started in concert by Carmellini and fellow New York chefs, Marco Canora, Seamus Mullen and George Mendes, joining efforts to generate funds directed to relief efforts in their own backyard.
