Celebrity Chef and YouTuber, Chris Valdes Is a Featured Chef At the 3rd Annual Flavors of Miami Event
(MIAMI, June 26, 2017) - Chosen as one of only 17 Chefs to participate, Chef Chris Valdes will be taking “Cooking with Chris” to another level at the 3rd Annual Flavors of Miami Culinary Gala on July 27th at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel. The event, presented by Cleveland Clinic Florida, will benefit the American Liver Foundation (ALF). Chef Chris and local participating chefs will create appetizers and an exclusive five course dinner menu paired with selected wines for their individual tables of guests. The cocktail reception starts at 5:30pm and the evening runs till 9:30pm.
“Giving back to the community is very important to me and what I do”, says Chef Chris. “There’s a special feeling, an inner fulfillment, when you do good and give back. Simply priceless. Giving helps you maintain a humble state of mind. We should share with others. I am very grateful to have been chosen to help the ALF with this important fundraiser by doing what I love best in order to help support individuals and their families affected by liver disease”.
When he isn’t in the kitchen, Chef Chris can be found on YouTube teaching his thousands of loyal fans about cooking through his “Cooking with Chris” videos. He began cooking at an early age at home with his mother, where most young Hispanic children learn to cook. At the age of ten, he worked at a Latin cafeteria on the first floor of the apartment buildings in which he lived. He would create his own salads, do the dishes and experiment on new dishes together with the owner.
Chef Chris’ passion for the culinary arts coupled with his enthusiasm and hard work over the years earned him a scholarship to Le Cordon Bleu. Shortly after graduating he started a catering company called Best Chefs Catering which today is considered one of the best catering companies in South Florida - handling both corporate and social clientele for over seven years. -MORE-
