Party Report: GRIMM Cast at No Kid Hungry Dinner at Irving St. Kitchen
Saturday, October 25, 2014
The Thursday evening dinner featured top chefs both locally and nationally. Locally, host chef Sarah Schafer was joined by fellow ISK chef Helena Root and another local favorite, Joanna Wares of Small Wares. These amazing chefs were joined by notable "Top Chef" contestant Elizabeth Binder of Hand-Crafted Catering in San Francisco and one of the biggest stars in the food world for the last few decades, Border Grill Restaurants Mary Sue Milliken of Los Angeles .
Since 1988, No Kid Hungry culinary events have been one of the premiere benefits dedicated to ending childhood hunger in the United States. The No Kid Hungry campaign connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
The Irving Street Kitchen dinner, which took over the entire restaurant for the night, consisted of four courses—Binder's Smoked Sturgeon, Milliken's Heirloom Bean Tostada with Crispy Avocado, Ware's Cured Salmon, Schafer's Smoked Prime Rib and Root's Chocolate Bombe—and a wonderful auction conducted by Johnna Wells.
Attendees included Lee and Beverley Winn, Chrisanne Davis and many cast and crew members of GRIMM including Russell Hornsby and Bree Turner, just one day before the stellar show returned for a fourth season on NBC-TV.
