Sarah Dwyer of Chouquette attended the event and offered samples of her beautiful, artisanal chocolates, as did Sophia Maroon of Dress it Up Dressing who gave away sample jars of her champagne vinaigrette.
The runner-up in the contest, Penny Glover, created a “Sunrise Sunset” Hash with Beets and Eggs. Chef Tony Marciante of Chef Tony’s in Bethesda prepared this delicious dish, featuring local golden and red beets, eggs, and chives for Happy Hour guests to sample. It was just as tasty as it was beautiful! Penny’s recipe was then featured on Chef Tony’s brunch menu the following weekend.
These Happy Hour gatherings are an excellent opportunity for the Food Council to discuss current projects, spread the word about our outreach efforts, and encourage participation in Working Groups. Above all, it’s a fun way for the Council to connect with other community members with similar interests and priorities. Keep an eye out for the next event; check the Food Council website and follow us on Facebook for more opportunities to join us in the future.
