What sort of night would you have if you were to gather some of the best Chefs at the former Versace Mansion? A night of camaraderie, mind-blowing food, and a little debauchery.
On Monday, June 26, 2017, Chef’s Roll hosted twenty-three of the Best Chefs at The Villa Casa Casuarina, formerly known as the Versace Mansion, in Miami for “A Night At The Mansion”.
James Beard Award Winning Chefs & Nominees came together, shared their influences and collaborated with one another to create dishes for 125 lucky invitees. Fine wines were provided by Montesquieu to accompany the seven different food tables, plus a Murder Point Oyster spread.

Here’s what some of the guests had to say:
“Chef’s Roll event at the Versace Mansion was a truly memorable moment for all of us in the industry. We felt celebrated as chefs, but most of all we all came together as people that care about our craft, our narrative and the love of making this planet a better place…one mouth at the time.”
–Dominque Crenn — Two Michelin Stars, Worlds Best Female Chef 2016
“The event was one of a kind, the setting in the Mansion was unlike any event I have been a part of and there is no other team like the guys from Chef’s Roll. The quality of Chef talent really made it special. Cant wait to see what they put together next year.”
–Brad Kilgore — JBF Semifinalist, “Rising Star Chef of the Year” 2017, 2016
“Nothing like bringing me up to speed with what the most talented young American chefs are thinking and doing than my Night at the Mansion with Chef’s Roll.”
–Jeremiah Tower — “The Last Magnificent”
“When I received the phone call from Thomas Keslinke regarding chefs cooking for chefs at the Versace Mansion in Miami, it didn’t take long for me to get excited about this collaboration. It is unique to see how Chef’s Roll takes new and fresh approaches to bring chefs together, while also setting the stage for innovative ways of impacting the hospitality world. I am looking forward to the next exciting event that Chef’s Roll has up their sleeve.”
