Yesterday evening the talented women of Les Dames d'Escoffier hosted a kick off party at Whole Foods for their annual Food Fight on line charity auction. The event included an actual fight, of course, involving whipped cream pies. Chef Sonya Cote of The East Side Showroom and chef Josh Watkins of The Carillon were there to support the cause, and to get a little dirty. Cote escaped rather clean, but Watkins wasn't so lucky.
The auction items for Food Fight include gift certificates to restaurants, invitations to wine tastings, and tickets to incredible food getaways. The auction started yesterday and runs though October 28th.
Susan Gayle, of the Food Love Austin radio show, was kind enough to capture a video and share with the world.
