On Tuesday I was lucky enough to attend the 20th anniversary of Food & Friend’s annual fundraising gala, Chef’s Best Dinner & Auction. A delicious event with over 55 local chefs tempting the crowd with bite size — and sometimes more than bite size –samples of their best. Food & Friends commitment is to provide sound nutrition for children and adults living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-threatening illnesses throughout the greater DC metro area. This year, Food & Friends will deliver more than one million specialized meals to more than 2,800 individuals (that number does not include feeding those who attended Tuesday’s event).
Thanks to Bunny and Ineeda Anaconda for hosting the silent auction. Looking great ladies, Carmen Miranda has nothing on you two.

Bye, bye Bunny. See you next year at Chef’s Best!
