Certified Piedmontese Beef Logo Certified Piedmontese Beef New York Strip Steak

The Piedmont region of northwestern Italy has for centuries been famous for its wines and its rich cuisine. It’s also the home of the Piedmontese breed of cattle, which originated there over 100 years ago, amidst the region’s green, rolling hills and lush valleys, in an area bounded by France to the west and Switzerland to the North.

The original migration of cattle to the Piedmont area of Italy is believed to have occurred about 25,000 years ago, and a “double muscling” characteristic began showing up in Piedmontese cattle in the 1870s: The term describes the breed’s unusual predilection for developing extra muscle mass but very little fat. The result is an efficient source of lean meat that, in spite of the absence of the fatty marbling typical of standard breeds, remains tender and juicy.

After Natalie and Lance welcomed their son into the world, they opted to go Gluten and Dairy-Free. They immediately saw and felt dramatic improvement, not only physically and mentally, but with their digestion as well. Natalie was eager to find a nutritious alternative to granola bars and other processed snacks that would not only satiate her; but fuel her mind and body throughout the day. Inspired by her Mamy Suzy (Maternal Grandma) and Sephardic Charoset, she began making Raw Energy Balls as a quick, healthy, nutrient-dense snack. She played around with different ingredients and recipes and found certain flavors and textures worked particularly well together. And, thus the four "Energy's" were born.

Natalie's Pilates clients were curious to know what she ate for snacks, so she brought in samples for everyone to try. Because of the rave reviews, encouragement, and excitement from her clients, she decided to start Make Raw Not War. She has a love affair with living and leading a healthy lifestyle and wants to share her passion for health and wellness to the masses!

Cabo Flats Cantina Delray Beach Chef Antonio Brodziak

Chef Antonio Brodziak has displayed his culinary talents at internationally renowned restaurants in New York, San Francisco, Denver and Acapulco. He now features his unique “Contemporary Mexican” cuisine at Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar. Chef Antonio Brodziak creates his dishes using traditional Latin ingredients and elements, but with his own unique twist. A native of Mexico City, he grew up cooking traditional Mexican with his grandmother. He received formal culinary training at the Universidad Ibero Americana. After graduation, the young Brodziak apprenticed under Alicia D’Angeli, who was then president of the Mexican Culinary Association and an internationally recognized chef. With D’Angeli, Brodziak learned the subtleties of preparing classic Mexican cuisine. In 1994, Brodziak worked at Acapulco’s Madieras, one of the top 20 restaurants in Mexico. There, he was exposed to his native cuisine in fusion with other international flavors. The following year, Brodziak moved to the U.S. It was in 1995, while working at Savan in New York, that he became a student of French and Asian techniques. The classic training allowed him to refine his palate and translate his international sensibilities into new masterpieces in his native cuisine that became the foundations of Contemporary Mexican. Working as a Chef with New York restaurateur Richard Sandoval (Tamayo, Pampano, Isla and Zengo), Brodziak helped open Sandoval’s signature restaurant, Maya. Impressed, Sandoval made Brodziak chef de cuisine, becoming an integral part of Sandoval’s team. Maya earned two stars from The New York Times and Zagat rated Maya one of the top 50 restaurants in New York City. Chef Antonio has been with Cabo Flats since it opened its doors in February of 2010, and has since created a deliciously unique menu that blends traditional Mexican cuisine with an unparalleled cooking style all his own.

D'Angelo Pizza D'Angelo Pizza Restaurant

Opening D’Angelo Pizza, Wine Bar and Tapas restaurant was a passion of Chef Angelo Elia for more than eight years. While Casa D'Angelo has been a place for him to showcase his depth of Italian technique, he wanted to create a restaurant that felt more like the simple Italy he visits year after year where ingredients are at the forefront. A place where you could come and sit and pick at food as you want with friends. But it didn't come that easy. Like all things that are simple, careful thought and research has gone into the menu and the guarded sources of our premium ingredients. In the end, D’Angelo is all about freinds and a good bottle of wine enjoyed in a contemporary, easy dining atmosphere.

"2012 GRAND TASTING" CHEFS

Sheila G Logo Sheila G Chef Photo

Sheila G is most famous for her signature product, Sheila G’s Original Brownie Brittle ® - the product launched on store shelves in April 2011 and there are currently millions of bags on the shelves of more than ten thousand retailers across the US, Canada, Mexico and the Carribbean, including Publix (in the deli), Costco and BJ’s. The product was recently awarded “Best New Snack Product of 2012” by the National Confectioner’s Sales Association, was a finalist nominee for the “Most Innovative Snack of 2012” by the National Confectionery Association and was named “Best Cookie” of 2011 by the Festival of Chocolate. The product is simply the crisp edges of a rich gourmet brownie. Sheila got her start in the brownie business in 1992 when she found herself unemployed after careers in public accounting and industrial advertising. She launched a company called Brownie Points using her favorite family recipe for brownies. Brownie Points’ business focus was corporate gift giving - tins, platters and baskets. In 1994, Sheila G’s fat free brownies were discovered by an executive at a world-famous theme park in Florida. This led to a contract with that company in 1997 for all the parks and resorts and included Sheila G’s traditional brownies as well. And she’s been making all flavors of brownies for years until inventing Brownie Brittle. Sheila G was recently invited to create some of her gourmet desserts for the upcoming November film premiere dinner for “Silver Linings Playbook” starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Warner, and for The Weinstein Company’s famous party at the Golden Globes in January.

Delish Catering Chef Elany Falquez

I was born in what some Latinos call the heart of south Florida, Hialeah. With its mesh of cultures it was the perfect place to grow my eager palate. As a child I was always drawn to watching my grandmother prepare traditional Colombian dishes that always seemed to draw a crowd. While the other children enjoyed playing outside, I preferred to watch my “Nana” cook, there was where I learned the fundamentals of the kitchen and my culinary heritage. I knew at this point where my passion and happiness was, Food. After graduating from the McFatter Technical Center for Culinary Arts, I started to work in several restaurants under skillful chefs who thought me how to make many classics of American, Italian and Mediterranean dishes. Doing this for some time I was able to hone my own cooking style working my way up from sous chef to head chef. I decided to go for my dream in starting my own company. With a fusion of Latino and American flavors I give my customers a visually tantalizing and delicious fresh food, while creating memorable dining experiences. “Everything comes out better when it’s done with LOVE” - Nana

He reports directly to Managing Partner Adam Robin and General Manager Marius Ilie. With a staff of over 40 people, Chef Nicholas oversees the 'front and back of the house’, making sure food is not only prepared to the utmost quality, but also presented as such. Born and raised in Livonia, Michigan, Chef Nicholas is the son of parents who owned two McDonald's franchises. Growing up, he learned from them everything he could about the industry - from running shifts and what it takes to successfully manage a restaurant. Initially having no interest in food, after studying Japanese in high school, Chef Nick became intrigued by the culture and its impact on how they cooked their food, which ultimately led him down the food and beverage path.

I was born in Caracas, Venezuela on August 21st 1974. At the age of thirteen in my mother’s kitchen. I used to create a lot of different salads at Family diners. I realized at that age that there was passion and a love for food. At the age of 15 I moved to Palm Beach, Florida to make a new home also to learn a new language, and its history. In 1991 while I was in high school I got my first job working in a kitchen, Narcissus Restaurant in West Palm Beach at that time I tried working as a food runner. A month later I realized I wanted to be part of the kitchen team. I started as a prep cook and took it very seriously wanting to know everything, 8 months later I was the head line cook. In 1994 my culinary journey begins working at Amici’s restaurant on Palm Beach Island as a line cook. In 1995 I started working at café l’ Europe, a five star restaurant as a chef tourne, in 1997, I stared working for Carmine in Ocean Grill as Executive Sous Chef. Two years later I was executive chef of chef Moustache restaurant but soon realized my roots were with Carmine and Noche restaurant from ’99 to 2010. We developed a concept, Cg burger and carmine coal fired pizza. My reward knew customers were leaving full and very satisfied. In conclusion, I have come to the very exotic “art” in Delray Beach at Vic and Angelo’s.

Gimmie a Kimmie Gimmie a Kimmie Kimmie Kookies

A little about me - Kimberly Azevedo. You can say that I was born to bake! My earliest and fondest memories are in the home kitchen cooking with Mom, whose baking and decorating skills would make Martha Stewart jealous! Needless to say, I learned from a very young age the art of entertaining with food and sweets. "People don't just eat with their mouths, they start first with their eyes" and "a colorful plate is a well-balanced plate" were the two basic cooking principals she would always repeat to me, and I still keep these in mind when baking today. My love for baking grew throughout the years, but it evolved into an art-form when I discovered 8 years ago that I had some food sensitivities to wheat, corn, and dairy products. Wholefoods became my new "home", and I would spend hours researching these new-found organic foods. So for about 8 years now, I have been cooking and baking gluten-free.

Eltamarindo Cafe The Amaya Family

Chef Néstor "Alex" Amaya is a Salvadorian native with an excellent reputation for his creative, unpretentious approach to a widely diverse cuisine. His father is a hard working farmer, and his mother raised their five children and spent a tremendous amount of time cooking for his family. Chef Alex gained an abundant amount of experience shadowing his mother in the kitchen, and feels that her great tasting food and wonderful recipes are what gave him the inspiration to go after the American Dream! Chef Alex was the first of his family members to migrate to South Florida, at the age of 12. Alex maintained various part time jobs in the restaurant business with a dream of one day opening his own restaurant. With plentiful experience, Alex began as a prep chef in one of his uncles’ restaurants (Bella Napoli). There is where Alex started to see his dream come true. He owned and operated his first restaurant in Miami when he was only 18, and then began to bring his brothers Antonio, Juan Carlos, Yecson, along with his sister Sonia and her husband Sergio from El Salvador to assist him in the restaurants. In 2003, as an ambitious 23 year-old, Alex opened El Tamarindo Café –a contemporary restaurant serving Alex's unique version of sundry Latin American cuisine varieties. Six months later, El Tamarindo Café was among the top 10 rated restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. Awards and recognition were garnered from local press and various magazines. As he gained vast popularity in the local community, Alex decided to open a second restaurant with his siblings in 2008, El Tamarindo Coal Fired Pizza. From his Coal Fired Pizza, accompanied with his local fresh ingredients, Alex has been rated by Zagat and local press since the very opening moment. Most recently, the Amaya family opened up their third restaurant, El Tamarindo Pizza, located in Deerfield Beach. El Tamarindo Coal Fired Pizza and El Tamarindo Pizza are both unique and diverse-cuisine restaurants that truly mirror Alex's kitchen profuse experience. Today, Chef Alex and his family work together as a team to operate El Tamarindo's three locations (Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale and now Deerfield Beach). The restaurants are open 7 days a week from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm. Alex is thankful to his family for their hard work, loyalty and dedication. He says, “My family has always been the greatest support to me in life”.

Olive Oil of the world Chef Rasheed Shihada

Ever since he could reach a stove, Chef Rasheed Shihada has been cooking. “I started out helping my mother by peeling shrimp and stirring pasta sauce.“ He recalls. Next came his first introduction to a cookbook, the iconic American classic; “The Joy of Cooking.“ Recently grounded as an adolescent, his mother showed him the book and suggested he cook dinner to occupy his time after doing homework. “It was probably the best time I ever got grounded,“ Chef Rasheed tells everyone. Throughout high school he propelled himself into the world of culinary arts culminating his passion for cuisine with a degree from the Florida Culinary Institute in 2002. After graduating he spent four months traveling throughout Paris, London, Ireland and Italy absorbing the fusion of world cuisines blended by so many different cultures and ethnicities. Specific time spent with family and friends in Italy brought “one of the most amazing culinary educations that one could hope for,” he emphasizes. After working in large commercial kitchens for chain restaurants he decided it was time to move on and to pursue a formal college degree in Political Science. Working as a political consultant for a number of years he returned to the culinary world catering parties for family and friends in his spare time as a hobby. From there he began building a serious “word of mouth” private chef business. In 2008, he joined forces with his mother’s hobby: an olive oil business. In 2012, he left the political arena for good and together with his mother they have grown their hobbies and passion for food into their business, Olive Oil of the World based in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Just recently Chef Rasheed finished building a kitchen funded by donations from a charity set up by the company at the Pace Center for Girls in West Palm Beach, FL. Starting in December he will be instrumental in teaching at risk teen girls how to cook healthy for themselves and their families. “I have been able to share my passion for fine food and healthy eating with people in my hometown and I feel truly blessed to be in a position that most chefs only dream about. This is why I do what I do, because food is without a doubt the most fundamental part of our human existence and as a chef I hope to do my part to improve that existence.”

Chef Peter Ziegelmeier is a robust multifaceted individual who enjoys combining class and elegance with simplicity and fun, humble and determined to deliver smiles every time. Inviting everyone’s inner chef and true self to come out and play. Growing up in a large Italian-German family he was no stranger to cooking early on. Out of all the children he was the one that stuck in out in the kitchen with the grandmas slowly reducing the Italian gravy or banging out spaetzle on a wooden cutting board and paring knife by hand. His true passion for culinary arts was always inside and it was a desire to create and play with his food if you will since age 10 years old. After a number of years in country clubs, hotels, corporate America, catering, event planning, it was time to refine his skills so enrolling at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY was a no brainer. With another passion flaring inside for writing about food and hospitality he set out from NY to FL to begin his career upon the seas and had many book ideas within him ready to pop out. His first book, Chef Peter Ziegelmeier’s –Dreams of a Yacht Chef-Food For Thought,” which he is self publishing through and now available on DreamsOfAYachtChef.comm, and soon to be available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble dot coms, is a testament to all inner chefs around the globe ready to create their own worlds of flavor.

Organic Takeover Logo Organic TakeoverRoosevelt Desir Organic Takeover Andre Walker

Roosevelt Desir

I joined Andre at the time to form BE ORGANIC in 2007 after closing our organic restaurant in the Design District of Miami. I started my walk with organic food after I was diagnosed with Stage Four Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2005. At the time of initial diagnosis I was given less than 60 days to live. To increase my chance of survival my doctor (and friend) forbade me from eating any food that was not prepared myself and was organic. I credit my battle with cancer to the success of living an organic lifestyle.

I bring a Haitian style of cooking to the table, along with my creative spin on recipes. I’m seen as the organized, all-work-no-play, always-here-to- listen one within the group. But don’t get it twisted… if you get in my way while I’m in the kitchen, things could get a little ugly for you. Sure, I’ll tell you about yourself, but you’ll likely end up laughing.

Andre Walker

I am delightfully skilled in my cooking ability and consider myself a jack of all trades in the kitchen. Away from the stove, I am always smiling and often in a good mood, but sometimes, even that has its challenges. I was recently diagnosed with mild diabetes, a genetic condition, but I refused to let it take over my spirit. I have embraced my own reality and an understanding of the regiment that comes with it. It is in this same spirit that I embark upon this journey, feeling confidence and at ease.

Roosevelt and I teamed up knowing that I could make a difference, and this knowledge has sparked a fire in me to help others. I firmly believe that my fellow chef and I are all “seeds in the garden” waiting to bloom into ourselves and the craft that we embody with the objective of nourishing all who are willing to partake in the ORGANICTAKEOVER movement.

“In order to create a movement, one must first believe and live the movement.” LIVE NATURAL.

Ritas Pitas Logo Ritas Pitas Chef Laudy

Lebanese cuisine in general is regarded as one of the world's healthiest cuisines because of the use of minimally processed vegetarian recipes, in addition to an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

Mezze may be as simple as pickled vegetables, hummus and bread, or it may become an entire meal consisting of grilled marinated seafood, skewered meats, a variety of cooked and raw salads and an arrangement of desserts. Although simple fresh fruits are often served towards the end of a Lebanese meal, there is also dessert and coffee. Baklava, which is usually associated with Greek cuisine, is also a popular Lebanese dessert. The main difference between the Lebanese variety and its Greek cousin, is Lebanese baklava often contains pistachio nuts and is drizzled with a rose-water syrup, the Greek variety usually contains walnuts and honey.
