7th Annual Tour of KitchensCharity & Social Events
The 7th Annual Tour of Kitchens is a self-guided tour of Coral Gables’ most impressive private residence kitchens. The Tour of Kitchens starts with the Opening Event from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Snaidero Kitchen & Design, which is where you will check-in to receive your wristband (required to enter each home) and the Tour of Kitchens program booklet (which contains the map of all the Tour stops). At Snaidero, you may enjoy breakfast, coffee and mimosas while you browse the store’s showroom. Beginning at 10 a.m., you may begin visiting the Tour stops. The stops will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and you may visit them in any order you like. Each stop will contain a free food sampling from a local restaurant, kitchen-related items for purchase and a stunning table-setting display by a local store for dining room inspiration. After you have visited each stop or as many as you can in the allotted time, you are welcome to attend the Closing Event at Ferguson Bath Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, which will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. At the Closing Event, delicious bites from local dessert shops and bakeries will be available and complimentary champagne will be served. The Closing Event will also feature a silent auction boasting must-have foodie, kitchen and home-related items as well as kitchen talks by noted designers. The Tour of Kitchens is $60 per person. If the Tour of Kitchens is not sold out, you may register for $70 on the day of the Tour at the Opening Event at Snaidero. Parking is available on the streets surrounding the homes and stops on the tour. There is metered parking surrounding Snaidero and Ferguson and Coral Gables Senior High School will provide free parking in the parking lot on the LeJeune Road side of the school. The lot is located two blocks away from the Opening and Closing Events. Proceeds benefit the Coral Gables Community Foundation and the Culinary Arts Fund, which provides support and scholarships for the Culinary Arts Program at Coral Gables Senior High School.
