As far as Festival events go, it’s nearly impossible to top a dinner headlined by chef, author, restaurateur, and Food Network superstar Giada De Laurentiis. The chef and Food Network personality is just as celebrated for her effortless style as she is for her inventive Italian flavors. Through her world-class restaurants, best-selling cookbooks, and a burgeoning all-things-Italian website and e-commerce platform (Giadzy.com), the Emmy Award winner has managed to translate those exceptional gifts into a kind of aspirational lifestyle that feels both exotic yet entirely accessible. That sensibility extends to her latest venture, Giada Catering, the catering company she recently created in partnership with Patina Restaurant Group, and the focus of this SOBEWFF® dinner at Verde at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Join De Laurentiis as she crafts the dinner party of your dreams, one that feels both cool and convivial, complete with a boldly flavored menu that captures her unfettered love of Italian food. Set against the museum’s breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay, this dinner will showcase the restaurateur’s signature style of entertaining with each resplendent course. As the evening draws to an end, don’t be surprised if it begins to take on the sweeping majesty of a Pavarotti classic. That’s just De Laurentiis’ magic at work.
