Meals on Wheels culinary celebration


May 23, 1999|By Sloane Brown

Gourmands were in their glory at the seventh annual Meals on Wheels Culinary Extravaganza. Some 350 foodies filled a Harbor Court Hotel ballroom to graze and praise the creations of 17 chefs from Baltimore-area restaurants.

Among the hobnobbing noshers: Meals on Wheels board president Jan Guben; event co-chairs Liselotte Karoalis and Greg Martin; silent-auction chair Kathy Townsend; board members Martin L. Wake and Nancy Allchin; Jon Danzig, VP of Impact Innovations Group Inc.; James Breiner, president of the Baltimore Business Journal; and Jackie Jackson, investment adviser with Harbor Financial Services Inc.

The food lovers lauded the lobster mashed potatoes, risotto crab cakes and toffee apples. They also helped raise almost $80,000 for Meals on Wheels, which provides home-delivered meals for the frail and elderly in the Baltimore area.

The evening was such a success that local treadmills probably went into overtime the next day.
