Join three incredibly talented chefs for a dinner you wouldn't want to miss.

Award-winning chef, SOBEWFF® Tribute Dinner 2023 Honoree, restaurateur, and cookbook author, Alex Guarnaschelli is a staple on the Food Network. With her signature wit and humor, she has claimed her rightful spot as one of television's most popular culinary stars on shows such as "Iron Chef," "Chopped," "Supermarket Stakeout," and "Alex vs America." A multi-hyphenate like Alex, Scott Conant is a celebrity chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author.

And like Alex, a popular fixture on Food Network, appearing in many different shows. Conant is best known as a judge on "Chopped," a role he's had since 2009. He's also a recurring co-host on Beat Bobby Flay.

Chef Christopher Aguirre is the Executive Chef of Loews Miami Beach Hotel, spearheading all culinary aspects of the iconic, 790-room oceanfront resort. Chef Aguirre brings his passion for food, creativity, and more than 15 years of industry experience to Loews Miami Beach Hotel, creating menus that are inspired, innovative, and most of all, delicious.

Alex, Scott, and Christopher are excellent chefs and hosts. See for yourself when they take over the kitchen at Preston's at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. Will it be a competition? We're not sure. If it is: You get to judge!
