Details - Foggy Bottom West End Village

FBWE Village's Gala will feature six Star Chefs. Each featured chef will appear and speak briefly from the Gala's podium. They will plate and serve their tasting dish.

Joining Lacoste will be chefs from Campono, Rasika, the newly opened Kingbird at the Watergate, and Westend Bistro at the Ritz-Carlton. And let's not forget the desserts that Captain Cookie will provide.

Tracy O'Grady is Campono's star chef. Campono specializes in family comfort food including pizza and gelato. Grady's decades long DC career has included mentoring other chefs. Her first restaurant was Willow in Arlington. In 2001, she represented the U.S. at the Bocuse d'Or International Cooking Competition in Lyon, France.

James Beard Award winner Vikram Sunderam from Rasika is another of our Star Chefs for the FBWE Village Gala. Sunderam won the prestigious James Beard Award as Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic in 2014. Before his decade plus career at Rasika, Sunderam was a chef in London for eight years before being wooed to DC for Rasika.

Ris Lacoste is DC's own Iron Chef contestant and the culinary advisor for the Village Gala. Named DC's Chef of the year in 1999, Lacoste trained in Paris, participated in openings of District restaurants such as Vidalia and was executive chef of Georgetown's celebrated 1789 restaurant before opening her own award-winning restaurant.

Michael Santoro is Executive Chef of the Kingbird at the newly reopened Watergate Hotel. His decade long career took him to six countries including London and Spain. In the U.S., Santoro had his own restaurant in Philadelphia and was chef at DC's Blue Duck Tavern. Watergate recruited him from Andaz 5th Avenue in New York City.

Alvin Dela Cruz, the Chef de Cuisine at the Westend Bistro, grew up watching Celebrity Chef Ming Tsai on East Meets West. He made the decision to attend culinary school after a brief period of studying computer graphics. Dela Cruz was Restaurant Chef at The Conservatory of The Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay where he developed creative, seasonal dishes showcasing his culinary talent.

Kirk Francis owns Captain Cookie & the Milkman. He is bringing mouthwatering desserts, some of the best cookies there are. Captain Cookie says, "It is saving the world one cookie at time." His cookie store is on Pennsylvania Ave; three cookie trucks wander the DC metropolitan area.

The Gala will include an open bar featuring white and sparkling wine, beer, juices and soft drinks.

FBWE Village salon tickets for 2016 are now on sale at http://www.fbwevillage.org.

Economist Jared Bernstein uses plain talk, common sense and humor to explain today's mind boggling fiscal policies, trade deals, employment trends, income inequality and other financial issues.

Bernstein is certainly no stranger to presidential economics. From 2009 to 2011, he served as chief economic advisor to Vice President Joe Biden and as a member of President Obama's economic team. Since 2011, he has been a senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. He has authored many books and has published extensively online and in print at The New York Times, Washington Post, and the Financial Times. He is an on-air commentator for CNBC and MSNBC.

There will be as many as 11 salons as part of the Gala fundraiser this year. Other salons will feature respected authors, art restorers, chefs and politicians. Salon tickets are available at http://www.fbwevillage.org at $75 each.

The Gala is the village's major fundraising event. Individual tickets to the September 7 Gala at the DAR Constitution Hall are $95 and are also available on the Village web site.

Daniel J. Balz, Washington Post’s chief political correspondent is one of the FBWE Village salon celebrities "back by popular demand," says FBWE village Gala co-chair Leah Schroeder.

Last year, Foggy Bottom West End Village Salons sold out quickly. Those of you who missed the opportunity to meet, hear a presentation and chat with celebrities in one of our villagers’ homes, rejoice. You have another chance. Tickets go on sale on August 15. Go to FBWEVillage.org to buy.

Dan Balz is Chief Correspondent at The Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/people/dan-balz). He’s been at the Post since 1978 and has been involved in the news organization’s political coverage as a reporter or editor throughout his career. The salon featuring Balz will occur after the presidential election and is sure to feature engaging campaign stories. Jane Scholz will host Balz at her home at The Plaza condominium.

News reporting has changed since the days of a daily deadline. “We have to hustle more than ever before,” Balz says. “If we can’t confirm, we won’t go ahead,” he says about reporting. When information happens, we get it up as quickly as possible. The Post updates as it gets confirmation and additional information.

It is true that candidate Trump denied the Washington Post press credentials to cover Trump’s rallies during the campaign. But the workaround was for reporters to get into rallies as citizens. Sometimes rally attendees were frisked and weren’t allowed to enter with their cell phones. Thus coverage was challenging but not impossible.

Balz not only has a heralded career at the Post but is also author of four books, including two New York Times bestsellers: Collision 2012: Obama vs. Romney and the Future of Elections in America and, with co-author Haynes Johnson, The Battle for America 2008: The Story of an Extraordinary Election.

His awards include the Robin Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting, the White House Correspondents Association’s Merriman Smith award for deadline writing, the Gerald R. Ford Award for coverage of the presidency (shared), and the American Political Science Association’s Carey McWilliams Award.

Balz is a regular panelist on PBS’s “Washington Week”(http://www.pbs.org/show/washington-week/) and is a frequent guest on CBS’s “Face the Nation (http://www.cbsnews.com/face-the-nation/ ),” PBS’s “NewsHour (http://www.pbs.org/newshour/),” ABC’s “This Week,” NBC’s “Meet the Press (http://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press ),” PBS’s “Charlie Rose” program (https://charlierose.com/guests/659 ) and CNN’s “Inside Politics (http://www.cnn.com/shows/inside-politics ).”

Born in Freeport, Ill., Balz graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and served in the U.S. Army stateside from 1968-71. Before joining the Post, he worked at National Journal magazine and the Philadelphia Inquirer.

There will be as many as 11 salons; efforts are in place to finalize details with respected authors, art restorers, chefs and politicians. Salon tickets are available on the Foggy Bottom West End Village Website (http://www.fbwevillage.org/ ) starting August 15 and are $75 each. Don’t wait to buy tickets for your favorite celebrities; they go fast.

Addresses will be on the Website for people to see when they buy their tickets, and people who buy tickets will get a paper ticket with the street address and phone number of the host.
