"The logistics were difficult this time," said Autry. "Some of the chefs live in New York, others in Philly; usually we use Swank Table to promote local chef recognition. This was a sic month process of contacting chefs and getting menus written. Darryl Moiles really helped me organize logistics. It takes a lot to get it to this."

Being that it was an outdoor event in South Florida, problems can arise easily. Right after the first course was served a torrential downpour let loose for about 20 minutes; Autry and her guests chefs got soaked trying to cover the grills.
