Restaurateur, Food Network Iron Chef and Cooks vs Cons host Geoffrey Zakarian is taking his talents to South Florida and opening Point Royal at the Diplomat Resort & Spa! Join Zakarian and the fiercely talented culinary personality Valerie Bertinelli, host of Valerie’s Home Cooking on Food Network together with hosts of Cooking Channel’s Extra Virgin Debi Mazar & Gabriele Corcos, for this clambake that will be the ultimate stationed, walk-around seafood dinner party during the Festival. Recognizing the plethora of opportunity offered by Fort Lauderdale’s growing dining scene, Zakarian’s coming attraction will no doubt be reminiscent of everything we know to be true about him - both dapper and debonair.
