When you put Avocado Grill’s Julien Gremaud, Max’s Harvest’s Eric Baker and Buccan/Grato’s Clay Conley (pictured) in the kitchen together, you get an amazing five-course meal that benefits Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.

That Mediterranean-inspired dinner is coming up on Aug. 23 and will take place at Avocado Grill (125 Datura Street, West Palm Beach), starting at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $85 per person, and reservations are required. Call 561/301-4998.

Born Foody: an idea born to help make life easier

You work hard, you have children (or not) and like to eat well, but life and time and space seem to conspire weekly to prevent that from happening—unless you spend a lot of bucks. Josh Wahler and Andy Tsavos, Miami foodies and food professionals, hear you. They felt the same way so they launched Born Foody—a nutritious, affordable delivery meal plan company. And it’s not confined to any small part of South Florida. In fact, it’s nationwide.

You can start ordering meals now. The ultimate goal of Born Foody is to give folks “an easy, cost-effective way to escape from our quick-fix, fast-food world… plus help teach our children how to eat,” says Chef Wahler. All of this, and the menu includes gluten-free and vegetarian-composed options, too. Try mac & meatballs, from 100 percent Amish-raised turkey breast and leg meat, with tri-colored pasta and haricot verts—or lamb or salmon or edamame succotash with mint spinach tofu sauce. OK, now I’m hungry. You can choose a 5-meal package or 7-meal package, or customize your own. The costs are for small ($46-83) to large ($52-$93), with free delivery via FedEx. Order here.
