2023 Tour of Kitchens Raises Funds for Culinary Program, Scholarships and Grants

South Florida turned out eagerly again for the Coral Gables Community Foundation’s 14th 2023 Tour of Kitchens, featuring ten beautifully-designed residences with dream-worthy kitchens, each with a restaurant or food sampling station and several must-have products from local vendors.

The opening breakfast and closing gourmet tasting event at The Shops at Merrick Park were packed with foodies as well as families; and special hospitality stations welcomed guests at MG Developer’s The Village at Coral Gables and the Belmont Village Discovery Center.

This year’s Tour kickoff was led by Celebrity Chef Donatella Arpaia, a judge on The Food Network’s Iron Chef America and the force behind Noma Beach at Redfish in Coral Gables.

More than 800 visitors attended the tour this year.

All of the donations from tickets and sponsorships goes directly to the Foundation’s Community Giving and Scholarships Programs.
