CORAL GABLES  (January 27, 2024) – Have you ever doodled a new doorway for your home? Stalked a splendid mansion on Zillow? Turned green with envy after being impressed with a new kitchen or courtyard at a friend’s house? Is your side hustle chasing the next big foodie thing?

Look no further because this Saturday, Feb. 10, foodies, home-design enthusiasts, architecture admirers and fans of the City Beautiful will gather for the Coral Gables Community Foundation’s 15th annual Tour of Kitchens and Tropical Living.

Eager “Tourists” will be inspired as they visit Coral Gables’ most exquisite private residence kitchens, indulge in gourmet samplings and desserts from the city’s best restaurants and shop home goods from local merchants.
