'Top Chef' Kevin Sbraga
Johnson & Wales University will honor Chef Kevin Sbraga as a Distinguished Visiting Chef. The public dinner will take place on Friday, April 1 at 7 p.m. (reception at 6 p.m.) at the Johnson & Wales University’s North Miami Campus.
Following a pre-dinner reception with a variety of gourmet hors d’ouevres, including luscious Lobster Bruschetta and Veal Sweetbreads, guests will be treated to a delectable four-course meal. The impressive mouthwatering menu created by master Chef Sbraga includes a Caesar salad accompanied with Sous vide chicken, Fish & Chips with a variation of tartar sauce and Meat Loaf garnished with chanterelles, bacon marmalade, pickled onion and truffle. To top off the evening, indulge with a Banana Split crowned with strawberry confection, chocolate ganache and pineapple.
Prior to being named winner of Bravo’s hit show Top Chef on Season 7, New Jersey native Kevin Sbraga utilized his passion for quality ingredients and completed culinary courses in high school. Sbraga acted on his love for cooking and enrolled in Johnson & Wales’ College of Culinary Arts in Providence, Rhode Island after winning a scholarship through culinary contests. He later studied abroad with world-renowned chefs before enrolling in additional culinary courses at Johnson & Wales’ North Miami campus, where he received his B.S. in Culinary Arts.

Sbarga held positions in several restaurants as well as being named Director of Culinary Development for prominent Philadelphia restaurateur, Jose Garces. Sbraga has many accolades, including making the 2007 list of “Top 10 Chefs” by Philadelphia Style magazine, named winner of “Best Meat Presentation at Bocuse d’Or USA,” and most recently winning Season 7 of Bravo’s hit show Top Chef.
