What do you get when a group of celebrity chefs move from the kitchen to the fairway following a long, and late, night of wine and burgers on South Beach?
"I'm clearly not the future of golf," tweeted Alex Guarnaschelli after one swing.
"Watch out Tiger, here I come!" Jose Andres said in Spanish after teeing off.
Nearly a dozen A-list chefs took to the links early Saturday during the South Beach Wine and Food Festival for a golf tournament hosted by Andres. He, too, admitted to staying out late the night before and "seeing the sun come up on the horizon."
"That's not the way chefs usually behave," the Spanish chef said. "But we need to play with the stereotypes."
Andres recently opened The Bazaar, the new hot spot at the SLS Hotel South Beach that handed out fruit push-pops and coconut sorbet to the players. Also on hand were mimosas and whiskey, cigars, and plenty of food.
Sloppy Gino sliders made with fresh ground chuck and "atomic cheese" were prepared on site by Nadia G, the host of Cooking Channel's "Bitchin' Kitchen."
"This is a fun, from scratch spin on an Americana dish," she said of the bite-size sliders.
