Gala at the Breakers West BY CAROL ROBERTS, Vice Chargée de Presse GLOWING HOLIDAY LIGHTS greeted West Palm Beach Bailliage members as they arrived at the Breakers West Country Club on December 17. The sparkling evening gowns of the dames de la Chaîne were set off nicely by the seasonal decorations. At the reception, attendees sampled treats from the caviar station and enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres. In a special room designated for formal proceedings, presiding officer Bailli Provincial Susan Vareschi touched the sword gently to each inductee's shoulder. Confrères were pleased to welcome Chevalier Daniel Bouaziz and Dames de la Chaîne Sophia Barataashvili, Jacqueline Cestone, Rosemarie Maccario, Victoria Albrecht, Karen Roberts, Debra Goldenhersh, and Johanna Klausen. The subsequent dinner prepared by Executive Chef Robert Brovero and his talented team offered a creative blend of textures and flavors. Breakers West Sommelier Cassandra Felix, who is also a professional member of the West Palm Beach Chapter, provided illuminating wine commentary. Following dessert, attendees thanked Chef Brovero and his brigade profusely. Newly inducted Chevalier Bouaziz treated the group to a brief concert of operatic arias. His voice was a treat to listen to and brought the evening to a perfect close.
