StarChefs DC Area Rising Stars Gala 2014

I had the pleasure of attending last night’s StarChefs Rising Stars Gala recognizing some of the best chefs and artisans in the Washington DC area. If you weren’t there, you really missed out. Thank you to Antoinette, Will and the StarChefs team for putting together another great event. Here are some of my pictures from the event.

Flipping through the books they were giving out, I was honored to see that Kyle Bailey named my website as his “favorite food resource”. Thank you so much. I love what you’re doing.
