5th Annual Naples Foodie Camp
October 21 - October 30$60
Naples Originals’ Foodie Camp, the annual signature fundraiser from Naples Originals’ chef-led independent restaurants, returns for its fifth year October 21-30, 2019.
“Foodie Camp allows students to personally interact with restaurant chefs and owners, understanding their philosophies and techniques. Each class combines fun, learning and giving; proceeds from ticket sales benefit the culinary training programs at St. Matthews House and Naples Originals scholarships at Florida Gulf Coast University’s hospitality school,” notes Beth Preddy, spokesperson for Naples Originals, which created and produces the event. Since its 2015 inception, Foodie Camp has raised more than $40,000 for its beneficiaries.
The 14 participating chefs and owners for 2019 include: Alexander Bernard (Alexander’s); Brian Roland (Venue Naples & Crave Culinaire); Keith Casey (KC American Bistro); Jesse Housman (Bistro 821); Tony Ridgway (Ridgway Bar & Grill); Seth Berman (Noodles Italian Cafe & Sushi Bar); Lisa Boet (Chez Boet); Jason Goddard (Barbatella); Abel Gonzalez (Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar); Jeanne Harvey (The Real Macaw); Monika Czechowski (FUSE Global Cuisine); Adam Nardis (M Waterfront Grille); Thomas Nutten, (Lamoraga), and Asif Syed (21 Spices). Additional chefs are still signing on to host Foodie Camp classes.
