Gary LampnerEggwhites Special Event Catering
Eggwhites Catering was founded in 1994 by Owner and Chef Gary Lampner. Chef Gary became passionate about the culinary arts while attending business school in Vermont. He successfully completed the American Culinary Federation’s Chef Apprenticeship Program where he trained for 6,000 hours at the world renowned Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. He later earned a degree in Hospitality Management from Florida International University.
After a series of successful stints at some of Miami’s hottest and highest-rated hotels and restaurants, Gary became the Executive Chef at The Strand on South Beach where he wowed a virtual “who’s who” of celebrities and luminaries ranging from Madonna to Robert DeNiro. Chef Gary was on the verge of opening a dessert restaurant with a focus on soufflés but was compelled to move into the world of off-premise catering as a response to multiple guest requests. Eggwhites Catering was incubated in the landmark Shelbourne Hotel on Miami Beach and continues to serve the Miami glitterati such as Drake, DJ Khaled, LeBron James, the Kardashians and Real Housewives’ Lisa Hochstein.
The name Eggwhites seemed fitting. To successfully prepare a beautiful soufflé is an art and a science. Every soufflé has two basic components – the base to provide the flavor along with the whipped egg whites to provide the “lift”. Like a soufflé, everything has to be just right for the event to come out beautifully. Eggwhites’ practiced understanding of the ingredients and the process produces that perfect, elevated experience every time.
The early success of Eggwhites Catering led the company to expand services to plan and produce South Florida weddings, grand galas and corporate events. After a short time, the Eggwhites operation relocated to North Miami where the Eggwhites commissary, showroom and offices currently reside in a state-of-the-art, 8,000 square-foot facility. Central to Eggwhites’ services are its elegant one-of-a-kind weddings and events for local clients and for those who choose South Florida for their destination wedding or event. Two decades later, Eggwhites is at the forefront of the industry and continues to set the standard for special events in South Florida.
