Yes, this is a big-ticket item but it's one heck of an event. The Anti-Defamation League has announced its honorees for the ~2006 FOOD AND WINE INDUSTRIES ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS~. The awards honor those whose involvement in business and community programs bring together people of all races, religions, and ethnic backgrounds to join in the fight against bigotry and discrimination, and to create an understanding of cultural diversity. The ADL was founded in 1913, and is the nation's premier civil rights/human relations agency fighting anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry.
Fedele Bauccio, CEO and co-founder of Bon Appetit Management Company, and Emmanuel Kemiji, M.S., Owner and Winemaker of Miura and Almvs Vineyards, will receive these prestigious awards at "Command Performance," a five-star, wine-and-dine evening. Following a reception, a multi-course dinner will be prepared by chefs Gary Danko (Restaurant Gary Danko), Traci Des Jardins (Jardinière, Acme Chophouse, Mijita), Host Chef Jean-Pierre Dubray (The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco) and Suzette Gresham-Tognetti (Acquarello). Michael Dellar, co-founder of the Lark Creek Restaurant Group, and Andrew Freeman, President of Andrew Freeman & Co, will preside as event chairs and hosts for the evening, and Vicki and Scott Kahn will be the honorary chairs.
