Avocado Grill Spotlights Chefs in “Spices From Around the World”

Chefs Julien Gremaud, Zach Bell and Pushkar Marathe

Executive Chef Julien Gremaud of West Palm Beach’s Avocado Grill is bringing a couple of pals to cook with him on Sept. 26. But it’s not just any dinner—along with donating a portion of the proceeds to No Kid Hungry, his kitchen-mates will be Zach Bell of the Addison Reserve Country Club in Delray Beach, and Pushkar Marathe of Miami’s Ghee Indian Kitchen.

They promise “exciting spiced dishes packed with international flare,” and I know those chefs will deliver on that promise. Tickets for the five-course dinner are $120, excluding tax/gratuity, and dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. Reservations are required.
