Perhaps you saw her on Top Chef. Perhaps you saw her on Top Chef All Stars. Now you can see her up close and personal at her work kitchen in Silver Spring. Please join your AIWF friends for a wonderful afternoon, as DCs own Chef Carla Hall demonstrates, in her inimitable style, a 4-summer menu that she has devised in celebration of the summer tomato. The demonstration will be followed by a full lunch based on the menu.

Prior to her career as a chef, Carla was an accountant and a fashion model. It was in Paris during her modeling days that she found her love for food. Carla is known for cooking with love, and this year was named Washington D.C.s Secretary of Love and Relationships. She has recently moved from running a catering company to producing a line of sweet and savory petite cookies. In September, Chef Carla will make her daytime television debut as a co-host in ABCs The Chew.

Carlas passion for promoting locally produced and health ingredients makes her a worthy ambassador for good eating. Her menu for this event reflects her goal. For the 1st course, she plans a Tomato Water Gazpacho. The 2nd course features a Roasted Tomato Risotto with Burrata Cheese, Basil and Balsamic Drizzle, followed by a 3rd course of Braised Pork Shoulder in Tomato-Corn Broth with Cilantro Gremolata and Crumbled Cotija. The final course will be and Old Fashioned Pound Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream and Tomato-Strawberry Compote.

Recipes will be available and, of course, appropriate wines will be served.
