Fort Lauderdale, known as the “Yachting Capital of the World” is hosting the 59th annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show on October 31-Nov 4, 2018 and we’re excited to be included. New this year, we’ve partnered with Wine Enthusiast to host the Inaugural Yacht Chef Competition, where four of the top yacht chefs will highlight their culinary skills on the docks of Pier Sixty-Six Marina.
Guests will enjoy an evening of cocktails and luxurious food tastings while watching competing chefs, such as Chef Freddy Money, present their creative talents by preparing an elegant beach side barbecue. Hosted by a Master of Ceremonies and judged by those acclaimed in culinary circles and celebrities, including Wine Enthusiasts’ Contributing Editor, NIils Bernstein, and Alonzo Mourning, NBA All-Star and Founder of Mourning Family Foundation. The evening will also be a central feature in the NBC Sports Network special dedicated to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The telecast will be modeled after NBC Sports’ North American International Auto Show Special and will showcase the newest vessels, technical innovations and performance reviews. The winners (chef and vessel) will walk away with prizes as well as recognition as Wine Enthusiasts’ “Best Yacht Chef” of the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
