Known to many as the “Father of Southwestern Cuisine,” Dean Fearing has spent his life cooking for people who love good food. His namesake Fearing’s Restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas has been the centerpiece of the chef’s “bold flavors, no borders” cuisine since it first opened in 2007. Thankfully, he’ll be taking his Texas culinary inspiration on the road -- to Miami! -- for one night only, cooking alongside pal and 2016 SOBEWFF® Tribute Dinner honoree Jonathan Waxman, the James Beard Award-winning chef of the much-adored Barbuto in New York City and one of the foremost pioneers of California cuisine. (Fun fact: Bobby Flay came out of both of their kitchens.) Together with Anthony Le Pape, Executive Chef of The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach’s Fuego y Mar, these passionate chefs will serve up a dining experience that blends their rare and remarkable artistry in perfect harmony. Pack your bags because for this SOBEWFF® dinner, we’re heading west!
