At the top of the marquee for the social calendar this year, Tasteful Traditions 2018 was a sold-out success. The highly anticipated annual fundraiser for the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU featured some of the nation’s most beloved celebrity chefs. The event was directed by nationally renown Chef Allen Susser and co-hosted by culinary journalist Linda Gassenheimer.

Known for their spots on national network television and their trend-setting restaurants, this year’s celebrity chefs were: Ingrid Hoffmann, Soraya Kilgore, Todd Erickson and Timon Balloo who are pictured below alongside their special “sous chefs” for the evening (major philanthropists and donors from the audience, having fun onstage with these star chefs). This is what makes the event so special every year – watching these famous chefs interact on stage with socialites as they co-create their signature recipes for the audience of food lovers.

Throughout the evening, each celebrity chef created an original recipe for one course of an amazing four-course meal. Top donors were selected to act as sous chefs onstage as the celebrity chefs prepared their dishes. Guests were then treated to these gastronomical delights, recreated and served by a kosher caterer.

A carefully curated Kosher wine, selected by local wine merchant Mike Bittel of Sunset Corners, was paired with each course.

Celebrated as one of the hottest tickets in town and one of Miami Beach’s most popular annual gatherings, this event always sells out and took place on Wednesday, March 21 at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, located at 301 Washington Avenue in the heart of South Beach’s historic Art Deco District.
