Morou of Kora and Iron Chef
Mike Isabella of Zaytinya and Top Chef
Sometimes I don't just work when I work. Sometimes it's actually fun to do my job. Last night was one of those times.
I got to go to the DC Central Kitchen Food Fight. Chefs battle in a mini-Iron Chef-type competition. The food and drink is good, the company is great.
The cause is stupendous.
DC Central Kitchen not only feeds the homeless, they train people to produce the food, thereby giving people skills they can use to break the cycle of whatever it is that has put them at risk to begin with.
Very noble effort. www.dccentralkitchen.org
If you only attend one charity event next year, try to make it this one. Tickets sell out early, but they are worth it.
Thanks for reading.
