There’s no shortage of amazing food events in Orlando, especially at this time of year, but this may be a tough ticket to top. On Saturday night, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando hosts an eight-course dinner prepared by 10 legendary chefs (including Top Chef vets Edward Lee and Tony Mantuano and James Beard Award winners Gerard Craft and Norman Van Aken) from across the
country. The over-the-top feast is part of a James Beard Foundation celebrity chef tour. It’s got a hefty price tag at $235 per person, but that includes tax, gratuity and wine pairings by Four Seasons master sommelier James Tidwell – not to mention bonkers dishes like Lee’s seared ribeye with gochujang butter, grits and radish bottarga and pastry chef Stefan Riemer’s gianduja-citrus crèmeux with dehydrated milk foam and vanilla Chantilly. They say the best Christmas gifts are experiences, not stuff; if you can swing it, this dinner could be the best experiential gift you ever gave.

6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 | Capa at the Four Seasons Resort Orlando, 10100 Dream Tree Blvd. | 407-313-6161 | jamesbeard.org/events | $235
