I received a very thoughtful email today from Brandi Evans, a fellow food blogger. Brandi is part of a unique food blog community called FoodBuzz. She and her husband Nick took some time out to attend a benefit dinner I cooked for the James Beard Foundation this last weekend. I had a fabulous time and apparently so did Nick and Brandi. She gave me the highest compliment by taking the time to write about this event that took place at the Palisades Restaurant in Eggleston, VA.

I'm grateful that the James Beard legacy clearly carries on through these benefit dinners. He understood that, "Food is our common ground, a universal experience."
