Don’t miss out on one of the top culinary weekends of the year. The eighth annual Sips & Suppers begins this Saturday, Jan. 23 at the Newseum with Sips, an unforgettable evening to benefit both DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table. More than 75 celebrated chefs and mixologists from DC and across the country will be serving up their signature dishes and drinks to support efforts to fight hunger and poverty in the Washington region.

The weekend continues with Suppers on Sunday, Jan. 24, a unique dining experience that brings top chefs to prepare meals in private homes throughout the city. This year, the fundraising dinners will be served at more than 35 homes in the metro area to more than 700 guests. Featured chefs include reigning Capital Food Fight champion Amy Brandwein, Marjorie Meek-Bradley, Todd Gray, Fabio Trabocchi, Ris Lacoste, Carla Hall, Kaz Okochi, Nicholas Stefanelli, Mike Isabella, David Guas, event co-founder Alice Waters and many more. There are still a few spots available, so act fast if you wish to attend a Supper.

“All the chefs are giving their time, their talent, their treasure to be part of this event. And they do that all the time,” DC Central Kitchen CEO Mike Curtin tells us. “What this is about is bringing people together around the power of food and using that power to create change.”
