Country Club Chef Showdown
Some of the area’s top chefs squared off at Boca West Country Club during the second annual Iron Chef-style showdown to benefit Hospice of Palm Beach County. Boca Raton magazine was a proud sponsor of the event, during which competitors from area country clubs created a signature dish featuring a common ingredient: plantains. Chefs included Zach Bell of Addison Reserve Country Club, Joe Longo of Broken Sound Country Club, Stephen Viggiano of St. Andrews Country Club and Bart Messing of Woodfield Country Club. Bell, a four-time James Beard Award nominee, won for his piono de camarones creation.
