Chefs Take a Stand!
Last night we also went to Carnegie Library for the Chefs Take a Stand to end domestic violence soiree. We snapped the night’s emcee, ABC’s The Chew co-host and former Top Chef star Carla Hall, flanked by The World Bank’s Elizabeth Legrain, The Examiner’s Samantha Moore, National Network to End Domestic Violence’s (NNEDV) Cindy Southworth, and by Global Social Media News Services’ Lauren Reynolds.
NNEDV is a social change organization dedicated to creating a social, political, and economic environment in which there is no more violence against women. Here, Speakeasy Spirit’s Lindsay Marsh, SunTrust’s Sydnee Stein, Donna Packer-Kinlaw, and EagleBank’s Scott Kinlaw.
Twenty of DC’s leading women chefs, sommeliers, and mixologists gathered to offer tastings and benefit the NNEDV. Here, sponsors Debra Chandler with Mary Ann and Mike Miller.
Guests enjoyed treats from DC’s best restaurants. Our faves: Ris’ creamy tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. We also liked the spiked mudslides from Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats; here, its team, Angela Perotta, Erin Conners, Honey Morton, and Doron Petersan, who shared the secrets to her two successful wins on Cupcake Wars.
