Grab your apron and let your inner Chef shine as we prepare for our annual Trustee Invitational & Interactive Luncheon at the historic Biltmore Hotel on Friday, August 24 at Noon.
This year’s installment features Chef Alex Kuk of Sushi Maki in Coral Gables. Chef Alex is a graduate of the FIU School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. He has worked as an Culinary Demonstration Coordinator alongside other celebrity chefs at the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival, one of the nation’s premier wine and food events.
Throughout Chef Alex’s culinary career, he worked with Giada De Laurentiis in Los Angeles at the 3rd Annual Tiger Woods’ Benefit and in New York City at a dinner for Bon Appétit magazine.
“I love meeting my guests and interacting with them, but I also have that passion for creating and mixing textures, flavors, colors in the kitchen,” he said. “And I hope I’ll be able to teach and give back to the industry, too.”
In September, he will become the Executive Chef of Pao Town in Coral Gables, a new fast casual concept located on 2624 Ponce De Leon Boulevard.
The Trustee Invitational & Interactive Luncheon is open to all members offering a fun opportunity to learn from Chef Alex during a lively and interactive luncheon by preparing their own three-course meal.
Sponsors for this annual invitational luncheon include Corporate Sponsor: Florida Blue and Supporting Sponsors: Bay Plumbing & Co., The Club at The Biltmore Hotel and RightSpace2Meet.
