Going to the spa usually is about getting your mind and body in tune — and now you can add to that a belly full of great food for a cause that’ll also warm your heart.
The Standard Spa, Miami Beach is hosting a series of dinners with nationally recognized chefs, beginning July 19, with all the proceeds going to charity. Among the Chefs Stand Up for Charity dinners is a night with the duo of Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson who were named among Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs for 2017.
The series kicks off with chef Nina Clemente of Los Angeles’ Italian-inspired The Smile’s di Alba. She will be cooking to raise money for No Kid Hungry, which, among other goals, feeds hungry American children summer meals when school is out.
Kramer and Hymanson take a global approach to Middle Eastern cuisine at Los Angeles’ Kismet, where everything from the freekeh to falafels gets a dose of California chill. Their Aug. 23 dinner raises money for Planned Parenthood.
The final chef the spa has announced is Angela Dimayuga, a James Beard Rising Star Chef nominee for her Sichuan cuisine at Mission Chinese Food New York, where she plays with wok-fired food and fiery spices. Her evening raises money for the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum.
Tickets, which include dinner, drinks and gratuity, cost $95 a person and are available online at ChefsStandUp.splashthat.com.
