Men dish it out


April 18, 1999|By Sloane Brown

More than 1,200 food fans flocked to Martin's West to nosh on concoctions cooked up by 125 Baltimore-area "Men Who Cook." The event was the seventh annual Gourmet Chefs of Distinction, sponsored by the Baltimore Metropolitan chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women.

Among those dishing it out: Bill Jews, president and CEO of CareFirst Blue Cross and Blue Shield (pasta salad); Frederick Douglass, president of Douglass Enterprises (Baltimore wings); Jeffrey Pope, Bell Atlantic software engineer (coddies); and Everett C. Fullwood, a director with Downtown Partnership of Baltimore ("soul" spaghetti).

Those digging into the dishes included coalition president Mary J. Demory; event chair Dr. Thelma T. Daley; coalition members Marsha Jews, Deborah Pankey Stewart and Dr. Leslie Griffin; Wallace Baker of the Maryland Department of the Environment; Russell Jolivet of the Pratt Library; and Cathy Pugh, C. E. Pugh & Co.

About $18,000 was raised for coalition projects in community service, leadership development and personal and economic empowerment.
