Chef's Roll Versace, A Night At The Mansion

Earlier this week, I, along with 125 lucky invitees, had the pleasure of attending Chefs Roll Versace, A Night At The Mansion. Imagine this: twenty four of the best chef's coming together to share their influences, as well as collaborating to create beautiful dishes at The Villa Casa Casuarina, formally known as the Versace Mansion. The VIP Guest's include: Dominique Crenn (Two Michelin Stars, The World's Best Female Chef 2016), Jeremiah Tower, and Markus Glocker (One Michelin Star. Best New Restaurant 2015). Yeah.. It was definitely a foodie's dream come true. I got to meet some pretty bad ass chef's, and you know I made it a point to stop by each of the 8 stations to try a little bit of everything!

The DJ had the Versace Mansion LIT lol, everyone was breaking it down by the end of the night.
