To quote the promotion by the James Beard House: “These days there‚Äôs more to envy about Florida than just the great weather: the state is also home to a burgeoning epicurean scene. Orlando is no exception, thanks to this talented group of chefs who are also good friends. Join them for an evening of Sunshine State cuisine, bold wine from California, and handcrafted cocktails.”
