As a new member of the Junior League of Washington, I had the pleasure of attending my first Kitchen Tour Kick Off at Scavolini Kitchen Design Center and the Ritz Carlton Degrees Lounge on October 18, 2012.
The event was a success! This event was great because I got to meet so many League members on an informal basis, sample delicious appetizers, and get ideas for my dream kitchen. Highlights for me included delicious Duck and Apricot wrapped in filo dough and Naaz Khatoon-eggplant puree with pomegranate juice from the Peacock Café, Mac-n-cheese truffle tartlets from Chevzous Catering, chocolates from Chouquette, and a specialty cocktail. I also was able to see some truly stunning kitchen design ideas. With so many options, it was hard to pick my favorite! As an added bonus, there were ongoing door prize drawings throughout the evening. Although I wasn’t lucky enough to win something this time; one lucky guest went home with a beautiful Hermès scarf!
The absolute highlight of my evening was meeting our wonderful President, Wendy Cumberland. It was great to connect with her and all of the ladies I met and hear their passionate stories of their commitment to volunteer service in the Washington, DC community.
