The Coral Gables Community Foundation will host its fourth annual Tour of Kitchens on Saturday, Jan. 26. Eight of Coral Gables’ finest private home kitchens will be open to the public and will offer food tastings, table setting displays, and home-related merchandise.
The tour begins any time from 10 a.m. on with breakfast bites, coffee, and mimosas at Snaidero kitchens + design showroom, 4110 Ponce de Leon Blvd. At check in, tour participants will be given a program booklet containing the tour map. Homes on this self-guided tour will be open until 2 p.m., and participants may visit the homes in the order they choose. Last entry to the tour homes will be 1:45 p.m.
New this year, one of the stops on the tour will be the Les Dames d’Escoffier Miami’s fourth annual “Giant Gourmet Garage Sale” piggybacking on one of the tour stops (which will also feature the kitchen of a well-known local dessert chef).
The Tour finishes with a closing event in the Books & Books outdoor courtyard, 265 Aragon Ave., from 12:30 to 2 p.m., featuring champagne, a wide array of desserts, a display on Kitchen Trends, and cookbook authors who will be on hand to mingle and to sign books. Honorary chair and Coral Gables’ First Lady Carmen Cason also will be at the closing event to meet and greet participants.
Tour tickets are $50 per person and allinclusive of food and beverages, and may be purchased through the website at www.coralgablestourofkitchens.com, or at the starting point (Snaidero) on the day of the tour. Participants also may call to buy tickets at 305-446-9670.
