Artistic Perfection BY NANCY RADLAUER, Bailli THE MIAMI BAILLIAGE held its annual induction din- ner on January 8 at the iconic Palme d'Or restaurant in the Biltmore hotel. Helmed by Executive Chef Gregory Pugin, the Palme d'Or is regarded as Miami's quintessen- tial French restaurant. Bailli Nancy Radlauer introduced inducting officer Bailli Provincial Susan Vareschi; Bailli Provincial Honoraire Charles Radlauer, who assisted her; and special guest Dame de la Chaîne Riccarda Matteucci of the Bailliage di Roma Capitale. During the ceremony, Chevalier Robert Chaikin and Bailli Radlauer received their commandeur pins; Biltmore Executive Chef/Conseiller Culinaire Provincial David Hackett and Vice Chargée de Presse Carmen Bigles-Raldiris were elevated; and Dame de la Chaîne Diana Nachio and Chevalier Joseph Nachio proudly witnessed the inductions of their children, Dame de la Chaîne Joanne Nachio and Chevalier Joe Nachio. Chef Pugin and his team received a standing ova- tion for the delicious dinner. The chapter's signature cognac-and-cigars after-party lasted into the wee hours of the morning. Those who stayed overnight in the hotel visited the Pérez Art Museum the next day. The Miami Bailliage's joie de vivre was exuberantly in evidence as members enjoyed everything from the evening's culinary talents to the next day's artistic ones!
