WORDS BY SAMUEL THORNHILL

The stars were out and shinning bright at the Citi Taste Of Tennis desert soiree held at the posh Hyatt Regency Resort in Indian Wells, with some of the biggest names from the court and the kitchen in attendance. Chefs Richard Blais, Jose Garces, and Engin Onural headlined a culinary team that served up a bevy of lip-smacking dishes to partygoers mingling poolside all evening long.

 

Next generation stars Alexander Zverev and Frances Tiafoe were in the house living it up, while their colleagues the Bryan Brothers, Vika Azarenka, and Bethanie Mattek-Sands decided to trade in their rackets in exchange for a chef apron, and take part in some entertaining cooking demos. The Bryans even got a chance to squeeze in a chest bump with Chef Richard Blais.

The event was a smashing success and we’re only getting started. Next stop… Miami here we come!
