On Saturday night, more than 500 people filled an airplane hangar at Kissimmee Gateway Airport for the fourth annual Jetport Food and Wine Party. The event is a fund-raiser for the Bocuse d’Or U.S.A. Foundation, a nonprofit led by renowned chefs Jérôme Bocuse, Daniel Boulud, and Thomas Keller that supports culinary education and recruits a team of chefs to represent the United States at the global Bocuse d'Or Competition held in Lyon, France, every two years. This year’s event benefited the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Special Olympics Florida.

Cooking alongside Bocuse, Keller, and Boulud at the party were Scott Boswell of Stella! restaurant in New Orleans, Michael Cimarusti of Providence in Los Angeles, and Daniel Patterson of Coi in San Francisco, along with chefs from more than 20 top restaurants in the Orlando area. In addition to fine cuisine, the party included a display of more than 100 exotic cars, eight private jets, an air show, and a silent auction. The Jetport Food and Wine Party is part of the four-day Celebration Exotic Car Festival that took place Thursday through Sunday. Here's a look at some of the evening’s fare.
