Culinary Arts

Complementing the visual arts on display is the popular Culinary Pavilion which invites world-renowned chefs to prepare their famous dishes and explain their specialties.

Reminiscent of the show formats made popular by The Food Network, live demonstrations provide entertainment and education for all guests of the Pavilion. This year’s chefs will represent successful restaurants and hotels from South Florida, including some nationally recognized authors and local celebrities as guest presenters.

Previous participants in the Culinary Pavilion have included Coral Gables favorite Marc Randazzo, WLRN radio host Linda Gassenheimer, Top Chef contestant Chef Ron Duprat, community supported agriculture advocate Teena Borek and acclaimed author of the Dexter novel series Jeff Lindsay.
