Prepare to bring your appetite to the 10th Annual Imagine Gala, Celebrity Chef Cook-off to be held 7 to 11 p.m. on March 21, 2015 at the Imaginarium Science Center, 2000 Cranford Avenue in Fort Myers. In addition to the other whimsical wonders and decadent delights this event has become known for, some of Southwest Florida’s finest chefs will compete in a live cook-off and entertain the crowd while highlighting the unique flavors, colors and textures of the region’s springtime bounty.
Brian Roland of Crave Culinaire, Harold Balink of Cru, and Fabrice Deletrain and Benjamin Voisin of Fathoms Restaurant & Bar are the charismatic, charming and creative chefs who will throw down in this locally grown challenge.
As the competition reaches a fever pitch, no one should worry about being able to stand the heat, as the kitchen will be staged under the stars on the beautiful grounds of the Imaginarium. Judging for the competition will include Guest votes for the “Fan Favorite” appetizer and entree scoring by a panel of Sponsorship Judges. Once their time as expired, the chefs will be afforded a 10-minute presentation to explain the strategy, inspiration and techniques behind their masterpieces. A seat on the judges’ panel will be offered to the highest bidder during the event.
Guests will enjoy Fresh from Florida inspired culinary creations, catered delicacies, open bar, music, activities on the theme of food and food science, silent and live auctions with interactive smartphone based bidding. The event calls for cocktail attire.
Many levels of sponsorship are now available, offering exciting promotional opportunities, gala tickets, a seat on the Celebrity Cook-Off Judge’s Panel, family memberships and more.

All proceeds support Southwest Florida’s only science center and aquarium, which offers engaging STEM exhibits and programs for children and families of all ages.
