Dinners in Paradise 2011-2012


One of the things I wish I would’ve done before leaving Miami is go to a Dinner in Paradise at Paradise Farms. Not only are these dinners held in a beautiful setting but they are prepared by some of Miami’s best chefs using ingredients from the farm. The dinners for the upcoming season were announced yesterday and the line-up looks great. As always, proceeds benefit local organizations that work on bringing sustainable, healthy food to communities. YOUTH L.E.A.D., Troy Academy and Slow Food Miami were selected this year. The cost for dinner is $165 per person plus tax and processing fees. Reservations are now open. Here is the schedule.
