More than 100 top chefs from the DC area showcased signature bites. We particularly liked McLean restaurant Harth’s shrimp and grits. We snapped Volt’s Hilda Staples, James River Distillery’s Kristi Croxton, and Georgetowner’s Kelly Muccio.

USDA’s Karl Maxwell, American Chemistry Council’s Steve Russell, physician Bruce Bonn, and John McLarty. The theme of the dessert reception was Virginia is for Lovers to highlight marriage equality in the Commonwealth.
