Deborah Szajngarten, writer of the blog The Culinary Adventures of Deb Szajngarten, won the two-class gift certificate to The Wine School of Philadelphia that I donated to Menu for Hope.
Many thanks to Chez Pim for organizing the charity event, to Serious Eats for being the East Coast host, and to everyone who participated. The raffle raised $91,188 this year.
Close to home, I would like to thank April White of Philadelphia Magazine, Mac & Cheese and David McDuff of McDuff’s Food and Wine Trail for plugging my prize. David, whom I met last night at the second Philly Food Blogger Potluck, offered a spectacular prize himself—his private sommelier services and wine for the night.
Again, congratulations Deborah. Looking forward to seeing you in class.
