Hallandale Beach is hot. This event will prove it! Chef Chris Valdes has a gifted palate and a unique ability to create amazing dishes by fusing Caribbean flavors with modern influences. His relentless drive to share his innovative recipes have led Chris to create his own platform on YouTube and star in his very own series, Cooking with Chris.

Chef Georgina Sulle is a local South Florida chef known for her authentic Agentinian cuisine. Georgina is the executive chef at KAO Bar & Grill in Hallandale Beach – site of this unique dinner. Made from repurposed shipping containers, KAO is a visual stunner of a joint that offers Argentine classics like shareable tablitas (grilled platters), Argentine-style pizzas and an extensive meat selection.

The combined culinary talents of Chris and Georgina combined with the coolness of KAO will make you glad you ventured to Hallandale Beach. Remember – it’s not the journey that counts – it’s the destination – especially if the reward is great food and drinks and fun.
