News From the Kitchen
Liberty’s Kitchen closed out the 2017 season of Guest Chef Night on November 16th with a fun-filled night of fine dining courtesy of Tenney Flynn of GW Fins. Guests were pleasantly surprised by a champagne welcome along with complimentary wine pairings with each course, which Chef Flynn facilitated in having donated by Republic National Distributing Company and Kobrand Wines. Each course, with the exception of dessert, were seafood items sponsored by Inland Seafood.
Long standing supporters of Liberty’s Kitchen were in attendance as guests and volunteers. A true sense of community and joy was felt by all in the room. Additional volunteers were provided via our longstanding partnership with Starbucks, along with donations from Stephen Torres and Steelite who provided additional flatware and plates, and Ariodante Gallery who donated a piece of art for the live auction.
Attendees also had a chance to hear a first-hand testimonial from Kayla Wilson, a recent Liberty’s Kitchen graduate. Ahmaad Lott, a Young Men’s Voices have Power (YMVP) intern, also shared his thoughts on the importance of the work that Liberty’s Kitchen provides and the need to support New Orleans’ youth.
The Guest Chef Night series will resume in January 2018.
