The James Beard Foundation Gala At The Four Seasons Restaurant

Last Friday evening I attended a wonderful event held at the incomparable The Four Seasons Restaurant in Manhattan.  It was the 2013 James Beard Foundation Gala Women In Whites.  James Beard, an American chef and food writer was a passionate champion of female cooks, supporting women like Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, and Alice Waters, who became legendary figures in American food.  This gala was to honor the accomplishments of women in the food industry.  The fabulous menu was prepared by some of the country's most talented and successful female chefs and the multicourse meal was complemented with flawless pairings from renowned female winemakers.  I had the great honor of being chosen as one of three Honorary Event Chairs for this unforgettable and delicious evening.
