Breakers Chef Simms is ‘Dishing Back’
This year’s all-star lineup of Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival events will feature top chefs representing 10 culinary destinations, a major expansion of events, and a novel charity component called Chefs Dish Back.
The sixth anniversary celebration runs five days and five nights, beginning December 7, 2012 and The Breakers is excited to host two incredible events this year: The kick-off event, Chef Golf Cup & Food Truck: Impossible and the premiere event, An Evening at Le Cirque.
Debuting this year, the launch of the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival’s Chefs Dish BackTM program, offers a personal element to giving. Part of this year’s exciting new charity component, each participating chef has selected a charity to support. The Festival will then distribute 100% of the net proceeds evenly on each chef’s behalf to their individually chosen causes.
The Breakers Executive Chef of Banquets, Chef Jeff Simms, has selected Feeding South Florida as his 2012 Chefs Dish BackTM charity.
The Breakers Events
- Launching the revelry on Friday, December 7, in true Palm Beach style is the new event Golf Digest® Celebrity Chef Golf Cup and Food Truck: Impossible hosted by chef Robert Irvine, host of Food Network’s hit showsDinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible, at the premier Breakers Rees Jones® Course.

- The Breakers is honored to once again host this year’s tribute dinner. On Saturday, December 8, we will honor one of the most famous restaurants in the world: Le Cirque of New York City. The special evening offers guests a chance to indulge in the decadence of one of the most famous restaurants in the world: Le Cirque of New York City. At An Evening with Le Cirque: A Tribute to Siro, eminent chefs Daniel Boulud, Jacques Torres, Marc Murphy and David Burke, along with The Breakers’ executive chef of banquets Jeff Simms and master sommelier Virginia Philip, will prepare the dinner of dreams in a tribute to owner Sirio Maccioni.
