Another year, another fabulous food event. Sunday night saw the final foodie gathering of the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival, which held its signature grand finale event, the Grand Tasting, at 150 Worth in Palm Beach.
After four full days of food-lovers paradise in Palm Beach, the final event culminated with a tension-filled, cook-off-style chef throwdown. With 30 minutes on the clock, three chefs battled for $10,000 ($5,000 for the chef and $5,000 for his charity of choice) and a year's-worth of bragging rights.
This year, chefs Eric Grutka (executive chef and owner of Ian's Tropical Grill, Stuart), Bruce Feingold (executive chef and partner of Dada, Delray Beach), and Sam Horrocks (sous chef of Pistache French Bistro, West Palm Beach) faced off during the festival's fifth annual Grand Chef Throwdown.
