Celebrating James Beard Award Winning Chef Ana Sortun + Her All Star Team of Leading Ladies!
We shared lots of stories over a beautiful family style lunch of wonderful mezze style plates inspired by Chef Ana’s travels to Turkey, Greece + Croatia presented by Oleana Chef de Cusine Cara Chigazola-Tobin while we sipped on stunning selections from Sharon Kazan Harris of RARECAT Wines based in Napa. Pastry Chef and Co-Owner of Sofra provided the sweet treats – and was oh so humble about her huge James Beard Nomination this year.
We were also entralled with Susan Turner, CSA Manager of Siena Farms, work with Chop Chop – a locally published cooking magazine – for kids! Siena Farms provides their “Kids Share” for the newly launched Kids Cooking Club in a partnership to educate children about the wonder of vegetables and where their food comes from!
And to tie the bow on the lunch – guests went home with a custom spice trio curated by Claire Cheney of Curio Spice Co. Claire is a former star of Siena Farms and Sofra and her spice blends are not only remarkable – they can be found at both Sofra and the Farm Store in the South End at 100 Waltham Street.
