Can you Dig it?

Last night, amongst family and friends, we ate for a cause. 

Chef Charles Phan (of The Slanted Door) came down from San Francisco to cook with hometown favorite, Chef David LeFevre (of MB Post) to benefit the organization Common Threads, whose mission is to teach children about nutrition and to foster an appreciation of cultural diversity through cooking. The meal featured organic produce from local farmer, Maryann Carpenter (of Coastal Farms).
