The Collaborative Kitchen

A Celebration of food & drink

Delray Beach is steadily emerging as a culinary destination for South Florida food enthusiasts. Delray’s long-time restaurants, 32 East, 50 Ocean, Da Da, and Luna Rosa have set a culinary standard over the years for creativity, inspiration, and food trends.

The 16th Annual Delray Beach Garlic Fest is bringing the much loved culinary talent of the area for the towns’ first-ever Collaborative Kitchen; this, coming on the heels of the successful, Chef’s Panel at the Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival, where resident chefs gathered to discuss the latest in culinary trends.

The Collaborative Kitchen will bring local area chefs together to collaborate on a multi-course dinner on Friday, February 6 from 6-8pm. This is an opportunity to watch favorite local chefs work together and collaborate on a menu for event attendees. A variety of wines from the Republic National portfolio will also be poured with dinner. The Collaborative Kitchen will be hosted by Christine Najac, Managing Director of South Florida Food and Wine. The two hour dinner will take place in [the] Delray Beach Garlic Chef Stadium. Limited to 50 guests, $75 per person.
