Skirt Steak: Collaborative Dinner and Book Event

Itinerant food writer Charlotte Druckman‘s new book has got some serious chops. Skirt Steak: Women Chefs on Standing the Heat and Staying in the Kitchen, reveals exactly what its title suggests–offering a look inside the life, triumphs, struggles and journeys of over 70 female chefs.

To celebrate the book, a series of collaborative chef dinners that benefit non-profit organizations related to women are being held across the country. And lucky us, one of these dinners will be held right here in Philly…

The dinner will be held on Sunday, October 21 at Barbuzzo, and chef Marcie Turney is bringing together an incredible lineup of women chefs for a one-night collective dinner to celebrate the bond and community of women chefs, as well as benefit Women Against Abuse. How incredible? Check out the list:

  • Jen Carroll of Concrete Blonde in NY
  • Ann Coll of Meritage
  • Beverage consulstant Phoebe Esmon
  • Monica Glass of Clio
  • Mixologist Katie Loeb of Han Dynasty
  • Lindsay McClain of Jamonera
  • Natalie Maronski of Chifa
  • Susan van Vreede of Distrito

With such a talented list of participants, this team of leading ladies will create a meal and a night that are both sure to be unforgettable. For $95, you’ll get the full meal, a copy of Skirt Steak, and that warm feeling that comes from helping out a worthy cause.
