Dinner in Paradise Opens its Fifth Season with South Florida’s Top Chefs

Our friend Gabriele Marewski of Paradise Farms Organic created an amazing event 5 years ago. The event is Dinner In Paradise.  Dinner in Paradise was created in 2005 by Gabriele and Michael Schwartz from Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink to raise money for worthy causes and create awareness of local farms, cuisine and chefs.  This year the event is bigger than ever.  The sponsorship for Dinner in Paradise continues with Whole Foods Market donating their delicious products to the chefs, Schnebly Redland’s Winery and their local, tropical wines and Lucini Itlalia with their amazing organic olive oil, vinegars and sauces and Café Don Pablo with their delicious Columbian coffee.  FIU School of Hospitality is providing front of the house management and along with Le Cordon Bleu, their outstanding servers.

Our favorite part is that Dinner in Paradise proceeds benefit The Education Fund for their Plant a Thousand Gardens Collaborative Nutrition Initiative (www.educationfund.org).  Paradise Farms is donating 18 Ready to Grow garden beds to 18 public schools.  Paradise Farms has already donated one bed each to Miami Dade Community College and Fairchild Tropical Garden for their teacher education programs.  

Dinners are scheduled from December through February and begin at 5 PM with a cocktail reception followed by a farm tour.  Dinner begins at 6 PM.  March & April’s dinner will begin at 6 PM.  Each dinner, priced at $165.50 (tax and google fee included), features six courses made with local, organic products, paired with top quality wines.  This truly is a unique experience not to be forgotten.
