South Florida is overflowing with tropical paradises, from the soft white beaches and turquois waters to the tropical gardens that dot the region. Paradise Farms is certainly one such, well, paradise. Gabriele Marewski, owner of Paradise Farms Organic, welcomes South Floridians and visitors to head to Paradise Farms to experience fine cuisine from the most notable chefs in Miami for the Dinner in Paradise 2009/2010 season. It promises to be a dining experience that will become one of your most memorable!
Surrounded by a dreamy setting of tropical trees, edible flowers, heirloom tomatoes, herbs and greens while sunset turns into twilight, these magical dinners will delight. Set amid this plush five acres of organic produce, Dinner in Paradise provides one of those “only in South Florida” experiences that celebrates community while offering local gourmets a unique dining experience. There is something very special about eating great food and drinking fine wines in an out-of-the-way setting, under the stars in the middle of the winter.
Dinner in Paradise was created in 2005 by Gabriele Marewski and Michael Schwartz from Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink to raise money for worthy causes and create awareness of local farms, cuisine and chefs. Some of the illustrious chef participating this year include: Chef Jeff Mcinnis from the Dilido Beach Club at the Ritz Carlton South Beach, Chef’s Gordon Maybury and Brett Rayon from the Loews Hotel Miami Beach- who donated all the lovely dishes, Chef Michael Schwartz , Giancarla Bodoni from Escopazzo, Chef Michelle Bernstein from Michy’s and new comers: Chefs John Psilakis & Sean McTiernan from Eos at the Viceroy and Chef John Chitchley from Area31 at the Epic Hotel.
Dinner in Paradise welcomes back Shari Gherman, Sommelier and President of the American Fine Wine Competition and the Gold Medal Wine Tour, as Wine Director. She has coordinated with Stacole Fine Wines to bring a selection of fine wines that she will pair with the dishes prepared at the dinners.
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, features six courses made with local, organic products, paired with top quality wines.
