TributeDinner Flay Clarke 720x370 - October 4, 2017
Our 2018 SOBEWFF® Honorees: Bobby Flay & Michael Clarke

The 17th annual Tribute Dinner presented by Bank of America part of The NYT Cooking Dinner Series gets a fresh new format this year, with a star-studded line-up of more than a dozen chefs cooking at this walk-around affair in honor of restaurateur, author and beloved Food Network personality Bobby Flay and Treasury Wine Estates managing director and chief executive officer Michael Clarke.  Top-rated radio host Elvis Duran will serve as the emcee during this not-to-be-missed evening taking place at Loews Miami Beach Hotel on Saturday, February 24, 2018.  Also new this year, the celebration will continue at Sweet Moves: Late-Night Desserts & Dancing hosted by Bobby & Sophie Flay with beats by lifestyle guru and popular DJ Hannah Bronfman.


Bobby Flay is the first chef to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and has proven himself to be a force in the culinary world while working tirelessly to show Americans how food can be bold and fun. In addition to authoring 14 cookbooks, he is the owner and executive chef of critically acclaimed New York restaurants Bar Americain and Gato. This native New Yorker has also ventured outside of his hometown to open Mesa Grill Las Vegas at Caesars Palace, Bobby Flay Steak at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, Mesa Grill Bahamas at the Cove Atlantis and Bobby’s Burger Palace in nineteen locations around the country. His first Food Network show, Grillin’ & Chillin’, premiered in 1996, followed by Hot Off the Grill and Boy Meets Grill. Bobby currently stars in Beat Bobby Flay, the Emmy-award winning Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction, Food Network Star, Iron Chef Gauntlet on Food Network, as well as Brunch @ Bobby’s as seen on both Food Network and sister network Cooking Channel, which recently earned him a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Culinary Host.


Since joining Treasury Wine Estates (TWE) in 2014, Michael Clarke has transformed the company into a global wine operation with four h1 regional business models. With over 20 years’ leadership experience in international business, Clarke has an outstanding track record at some of the world’s iconic consumer goods companies. He has held senior executive roles at Kraft Foods, where he was President of the Company’s European business and sat on the global operating board, The Coca-Cola Company and Reebok International. Prior to starting at TWE, he was Chief Executive Officer of the UK publicly listed company Premier Foods plc, where he led a significant turnaround of the business.
