                                     To all the Chef’s and friends of the Chapter,
                                     This was going to be the February Newsletter and a celebration of all of
                                     those who where recognized at the Gala Dinner on February the 15th at the
                                     Hilton Alexandria at Mark Center hosted by Tim Recher. It still is despite
                                     being more than a little dated at this point. I of course want to thank all those
                                     who attended who are to numerous to mention and I hesitate to spotlight all
                                     who manned stations or otherwise participated for fear of leaving anyone

                                     pleasure to for me to see Executive Chef of Congressional Country Club and

                                     mistake about it that I am also very much at peace with my decisions on what
                                     do and when to do it. My level of discomfort for missing two months of
