Join us for an evening that takes a deeper look at how climate change impacts the food we eat. During the first half of the evening, explore the sustainability fair on Vizcaya’s East Terrace and discover different local partners and the important work they are doing locally. See the list below.
Things get cooking for the second half of the night. Three chefs will take the last hour to prepare dishes around seafood and tropical fruits, two types of ingredients that are heavily impacted by climate change. The lower East Terrace turns into our very own Top Chef kitchen as three local prepare their dishes live and you can watch the action.
The event culminates as a panel of judges names the winning dish.
