A Sweet Affair : 11th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair

11th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair to benefit the Washington Humane Society. It was very welcome invitation from Google DC to go as their guest to the 11th Annual Sugar & Champagne Affair. Over 600 people accompanied by several well behaved guests ( Human's best friends) attended this event held at the Ronald Reagan Building and
International Trade Center. I can safely say that I  did not see the first dog "buddy".

The event started with a VIP Chefs' Tasting Room and followed by a general reception. The event was hosted by Chef Todd and Ellen Gray of Equinox & Watershed Restaurants andMuse at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

The Washington Humane Society honored the Washington Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement Officers, Animal Control Officers, and Humane Educators. If you would like to to make a donation to the Washington Humane Society, please click here.

In the VIP tasting room several chefs displayed great talent in food and small bites.  Andrew Markert Chef De Cuisine of PS 7's Restaurant  shows off his beet tartare. I had 2 helpings of this. The dish  was trendy and I love imitation food that is vegetarian.

 and Harper MCClure of the Federalist Restaurant  was  dishing out great consomme. It was very tasty with a Chicken meatball in it and very clear and well bodied. it is difficult to maintain a clear consomme and from my days as a chef I was always terrified of the consomme clouding and was so happy to taste this here.
