Angelo Elia, Rickie Piper, and Sommelier Koen Kersemans
Casa D'Angelo Ristorante, Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, Bahamas; Boca Raton, FL; and Fort Lauderdale, FL; and D'Angelo Pizza Wine Bar and Tapas, Oakland Park, FL

Known for his opulent, masterfully prepared Tuscan fare, Angelo Elia was just the chef to tap for a festive, Italian-inspired Christmas dinner. Along with executive chef Rickie Piper and sommelier Koen Kersemans, Elia has crafted a tantalizing menu to celebrate the holiday traditions and cuisine of the bountiful Italian countryside.
