South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Society - By Kris­lyn Placide Sun Sen­tinel So­ci­ety Scene

Lo­cal restau­rants com­peted dur­ing Gumbo Limbo Na­ture Cen­ter’s in­au­gu­ral Gum­boFest.

Gumbo Limbo Na­ture Cen­ter may be named for a tree na­tive to South Florida, but the non­profit’s most re­cent fundraiser was all about the Ca­jun stew.

Hun­dreds of guests gath­ered for the in­au­gu­ral Gum­boFest, which fea­tured gumbo tast­ings from lo­cal chefs com­pet­ing to serve up the best recipe. Par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants in­cluded the Funky Bud­dha Brew­ery, Publix Aprons, Ouzo Bay, Boca Re­sort & Beach Club and E&M Cater­ing.

First place went to Chef An­drew Dono­van of Ouzo Bay, fol­lowed by Chef Ray Dolan of Boca Re­sort & Beach Club in sec­ond place.

The event also fea­tured live mu­sic, drinks, games, raf­fles, food trucks and more. Funds raised will sup­port Gumbo Limbo’s ef­forts to stew­ard coastal ma­rine re­sources, in­clud­ing its sea tur­tle re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and con­ser­va­tion pro­grams.
