Les Dames d’Escoffier Miami hosts its fifth annual Tropical Brunch in the cool, green lushness of the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. Les Dames is a service organization whose talented culinary-industry members are dedicated to “improving nutrition, education and the quality of life in our community.”
By coming out to enjoy the signature dishes created by Bianca at the Delano, The Front Porch Café, Hakkasan at the Fountainebleau Miami Beach, The Oceanaire Seafood Room, Serafina Dream South Beach, Smith & Wollensky and Sweet Art by Lucila, among others, you’ll help fund local scholarship and educational programs.
Brunch is just the start: Have an eye-opener from the Bloody Mary bar. Bid on spa treatments, gift baskets and other luxe goods in the silent auction. Learn something new at Dames’ cooking demonstrations. Snag a copy of Dame Ellen Kanner’s Feeding the Hungry Ghost–she’ll be there to sign it!
Come casual and leave relaxed and sated. It promises to be a delicious afternoon.
