Dear beautiful people,

I'm so excited to share this revolutionary, love-inspired event just before Valentine's Day. Co-sponsored by Tarocco (woman-owned), an establishment that shares my vision of style and culinary excellence while also ensuring that staff receives a living wage. I invite you to join me in this ethical dining experience and reframe the way we value people in the food service industry.

Honestly, love is all we really need. So join me as I lean into my true love, my first loves: food and culture. The sample menu I've adopted is sexy, seasonal, and wildly tasty. The citrus crudo boasts seven different varieties of citrus, while the slow-cooked braised beef cheeks require no knife as you drag a morsel through my famous SeneGambian peanut sauce. My favorite flavor combination--chocolate and pear--speaks to my time in the city of lights: Paris.

You are in the best, most capable hands for the evening. Allow me to reintroduce myself and my craft to you. It's been a while and I miss all of you.
