Over the past 500 years, the state of Florida has been influenced by many different cultures, such as the Caribbean and the Native American tribes that originally inhabited the state. Chef Rick Mace of Cafe Boulud Palm Beach has taken this fusion and brought the story to menu. The four-course tasting menu is listed below and each course will be paired with wines from the Knights Bridge Winery from Sonoma, which will be introduced by Cafe Boulud’s head sommeleiere, Mariya Kovacheva. The evening’s special guest will be Meredith Cahill-Marsland, Knights Bridge winemaker and native Floridian, whom Mariya said approaches winemaking in a similar way as Chef Rick’s approach to the menu, “to share the bounty of the land and protect it’s heritage.
