Earlier this month, we teamed up with Pinch Kitchen to raise money for a great cause: Born Free Pet Shelter, a no-kill and non-profit dog rescue that has been helping homeless dogs since 1981. Guests who participated in the event enjoyed an all-inclusive brunch with delicious dishes from Pinch duo John Gallo and Rene Reyes. Here’s what you missed.
On March 26, nearly 500 attendees gathered to watch five chef teams duke it out at the ultimate pork feast inside The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. Cochon555, a national tour promoting global food cultures and family farming, treated guests to over 1,500 pounds of heritage-breed pork and plenty of adult beverages throughout the 3-hour affair.
Every few months, the Pinch Kitchen team hosts a collaboration dinner with some of South Florida’s culinary giants. On January 30, the fifth installment of the Craft Collab series featured Chef Niven Patel of Ghee Indian Kitchen, which is set to open in Downtown Dadeland later this year.
The family-style affair served as a sneak peek of Chef Patel’s new eatery and put three of Miami’s top chefs under one roof. Together with Chef Patel, Pinch’s John Gallo and Rene Reyes cooked up a multi-course masterpiece of a menu that left us even more excited for Ghee Indian Kitchen and the future of this dinner series.
As 2016 comes to a end (finally), we want to thank everyone for their continued support. It’s been fun sharing our food adventures with you this past year, and we have a lot more in store for 2017. With that said, we’ve eaten a ton of food in 2016 and there have been plenty of highlights.
Below, you’ll find a few of our favorite spots. We’ll see you next year!
2017 is almost here, and it can’t come soon enough. It’s been a crazy year in our country and abroad: an insane election, notable celebrity deaths and a ton of other events that are memorable for all the wrong reasons. Odds are that you need a drink (or five).
