Chef Keith R. Esbin is embarking on a new endeavor as Corporate Chef USA for Paramount Fine Foods. This self-taught chef won numerous culinary and recipe contests during his career. He is very active in the American Culinary Federation Central Florida Chapter.
Chef Keith is known as the Greyhound Chef, for his passion and involvement with the local non-profit rescue group, Greyhound Pets of America Greater Orlando. Every year, Chef Keith organizes Greyt Plates, a culinary tasting event benefiting this cause. Over the years, Greyt Plates grew, bringing many of the finest local celebrity chefs and participants, and raised over $20,000 last year. Held on Tuesday, December 16th. at the gorgeous Rosen Shingle Creek, the 4th Annual Greyt Plates is promising to be bigger than ever.
More than 20 Central Florida Top Chefs, including Celebrity Chef Emily Ellyn, Julian Hopke, and Paul Joachim, will create amazing signature dishes. Guests will sample wine and beer from local distributors, and participate in live and silent auctions. Proceeds benefit the Greyhound Pets of America Greater Orlando, helping to pay for food, medical expenses and electricity. Tickets are $35 advance purchase (www.greyhoundpetsorlando.org) or $40 at the door.
