I attended this event just a few years ago when I was working for a pharmaceutical company, and may I say, it was DELIGHTFUL. I highly recommend going, it is well worth the price. You will be face to face with Ming Tsai, Jasper White, Joanne Chang, just to name a few. You get a bit of everything (and everything is delicious), and it benefits a worthy cause.

Hi Christina and welcome to my blog.

I will be attending this event and I very much look forward to it. With the famous chefs that are attending, I am sure the food will be delicious. I hope to see plenty of other local food writers and bloggers there as well.
