Though we could completely fill up by eating our weight in appetizers from the Meals on Wheels Star Chefs and Vintners Gala, we know from past experience to save room for more. The evening is far from over with the seated three-course meal and then the deserts afterwards. During the dinner, AJ and I always sneak off to the back to do some behind-the-scenes photography and to marvel at all the chefs seamlessly moving about, in an orchestrated ballet of plating. While everyone else is bidding on the silent auction for incredible items (home prepared meals by some of the best chefs in the world to a collection of wine that is nearly impossible to purchase) AJ and I watching the chefs grill and plate the food, hoping each dish is the one we’re going to eat. And after all that comes the desserts. In the end, we find ourselves stuffed beyond belief and so happy to have supported an important cause like Meals on Wheels.

Special thanks to Meals on Wheels for providing tickets to the Star Chefs and Vintners’ gala. I was not monetarily compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.
