Competition was hot and heavy at Top Chef Arlington 2017 last Thursday! Four teams served up their best appetizers, entrees, and desserts, all of which were enjoyed and judged by everyone in the audience. Besides the Student Team, there was a team of professionals, a team comprised of Arlington High School staff members, and a team from Sparrow's Nest. I was lucky to be invited to emcee the event, and, besides the great food, I went away with a super-sized boost to my enthusiasm for life in general. All of the teams and the audience were just terrific, and to top it all off, Sparrow's Nest was presented with a portion of the proceeds to support their work of providing meals to the families of caregivers dealing with cancer. So, it was an evening satisfying in every possible way.
Thank you, Arlington High School, for inviting me to participate!
