at Work BY JANA SOELDNER DANGER, Southeast Chargée de Presse Provincial Honoraire ON FEBRUARY 19, Fort Lauderdale Bailliage members got a behind-the-scenes look at how chefs work during their dinner at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Bailli John Kane directs the institute's International Culinary School, where budding chefs learn how to turn their love of food into culinary careers. Their training includes gain- ing real-life experience at the school's onsite restaurant, the Chef's Palette Café and Grill. The southwest- ern theme had many attendees sporting wide-brimmed hats, boots, and fringe. Bailli Kane presented Chef-Instructor Dustin Gordon, who gave diners a tempting pre- view of the evening's culinary delights. They also met culi- nary student Matthew Rolnick—nephew of Bailli Honoraire Eileen Rolnick and Chevalier Audie Rolnick—who is continuing the family tradition of food and wine appreciation. Under the guidance of Chef Gordon, the students demonstrated their extensive skills not only through the delicious fare they prepared but also by their profes- sional delivery of each course and its wine partner. Attendees left confident that the young chefs who had served them had great culinary futures ahead of them.
