In addition to the plethora of food events associated with the South Beach Food and Wine Fest there are also plenty of ancillary events that we locals can take advantage of. One such is this "Chefs for Scher" brunch happening on Sunday February 21 at 11:30 am at Scarpetta at the Fontainebleu.
Host chef Scott Conant welcomes highly regarded chefs Charlie Trotter and John Fraser and pastry chef Jean Marie Auboine, into his kitchen, while guest sommelier Jean Luc Le Dû presides over the wine service pouring champagne, white and red wine donated by Henriot Inc., to honor the food industry magnate Steven Scher and raise money for this worthwhile scholarship in his name.
Tickets to this event are $200 ($180 for James Beard members.)
Any donation over $100 is 100% tax-deductible, and tickets are non-refundable.
