When Barron Collier lured gourmet chef Claus “Snooky” Senghaas to the 10,000 Islands, it is doubtful that he imagined he would end up as chef, maître d’ and general manager of two fine hotels with upscale restaurants — serving sports stars, celebrities and presidents. Join us for this lecture about one of Everglades’ most colorful characters and find out which powerful German political figure Snooky began his career with, who said he made the best cup of coffee in the world, and where he got his nickname (it’s not what you think!).
