We have *changed the line-up for February and our guest on Thurs Feb 16 will be acclaimed Washington-based chef Nora Pouillon. Hers is an incredible story, and not only that she was the first DC chef to use an organic foods driven menu, but also her role in the community, and her own personal story; a journey from Vienna to the nation's capital, and life as an independent woman. She recently announced her retirement so now seems like a good time to sit down and talk!
There's so much to discuss. I can't wait. Not the least of which are our personal and business connections. It was Nora who introduced me to Paul Wahlberg, who became chef at Nathans, and now has gone on to a huge success with his chain and TV show, Wahlburgers. He'll be opening a Wahlburgers at Dupont Circle, in fact. But most restaurants, and foodies, in DC can trace a connection to Nora ... actual or spiritual.
Book your seat today at the George Town Club. 202-333-9330 or send Joe an email. This is only a week away, so please spread the word.
*Our planned guest, MPD Chief Peter Newsham, had to postpone.
