Dinner party and the pig

Nothing like some gourmet suckling pig wrapped in crackle to be a reason to congregate! I enjoyed hanging with women leaders in media and business at Art and Soul near Capitol Hill. Executive Chef Wes Morton wowed the crowd of friends with his 4 courses family style dinner. It included an heirloom melon salad and the milk fed pig with egglplant casserole. There was also a local cheese board with fresh honey comb. Apparently honey is the new thing to pair cheese with these days!

Smith who lost more than 100 pounds is changing up his menu reflect living well.  To cut the fat but keep the flavor he brought in new Executive Chef Wes Morton (formerly of Againn) who hails from Louisiana. To toast the new lighter taste… foodies and even Food Network stars celebrated with small bites and southern cocktails on Art & Soul’s popular patio. Watch WUSA9 Thursday morning for more from the party!

TLC threw a small affair at the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown to celebrate and screen the latest reality show to come out of the Washington: DC Cupcakes.  Based of the small cupcake business that has made monumental booms in just two years the series is part of the network’s summer lineup. In addition to indulging in the sweet treats which were everywhere you turned… we got a sneak peak at the show’s first episode set to air this Friday at 10PM.  Look for some sisterly tension in the series opener along with some cute ‘mommy’ humor and one particular character Andres who steals the show and has some pretty awesome hair.
