When Chef Rick Bayless calls, you answer...I was lucky enough to get that call. We worked together with chefs in New Orleans, Dallas, Washington DC to create honey inspired dining experiences as a fundraiser for Whole Kids Foundation. I am so excited and proud to announce that we raised over $64,000🎉🙌🏽 With that, Whole Kids Foundation will be able to fund 30 new bee hives – in 23 states! This will reach more than 15,000 kids with important education about gardening and pollinators. This includes four Chicago Public Schools 🙌🏽 Kids everywhere are going to get the chance to be healthier and help the environment in the process!!
I am more than humbled that Chef Rick Bayless chose me for this important initiative and am so grateful for this amazing opportunity. I had met Chef Rick a few times before. We talked about food, gardening and sustainability, some of my favorite topics. He is so nice and so patient. Chef Rick was asked to create a four course meal that would benefit local public school kids and he asked me to join him. When I learned that it more specifically was to provide education on pollinators, I was sold. I have had a garden for several years and understand their value. Last year, because of a lack of pollinators, I had to hand pollinate my zucchini plants😲 I immediately accepted and got to work with the staff and Chef Bayless. I was so excited. I visited his Frontera Grill restaurant, local beekeepers and even visited Chef Rick’s home garden. So much inspiration, we set out to create a meal where honey would be the star. During a final tasting at Frontera, I was amazed by how much of collaboration we had. I was also amazed at how Chef Bayless really listened and valued my opinion. The event was awesome of course. The Frontera staff is really top-notch and great to work with.
