I was back in LA this past weekend and attended Alex's Lemonade Stand, a wonderful charity raising money to treat and prevent childhood cancer. The event was beautifully organized, the weather was fantastic, the attendance was star-filled (Jimmy Kimmel was the Emcee for the event, Michelle Branch performed and there seemed to be an endless stream of celebrities) and the food was worth writing home about.

"Top Chef" season 6 winner Michael Voltaggio was nice enough to pose for a picture with me.

The food was all tremendous. Each chef spent their time and effort preparing dishes that were thoughtful, beautiful executed and delicious. Most stood up to the 80+ degree temperatures too which was mighty impressive.
|Loved this dish - it's purple potatoes were stunning|
|Quirky presentation plus caviar|
|Treats - some filled with ice cream from Sweet Rose Creamery|

Looking forward to get more involved with a wonderful charity and attending this event again next year!
