Ruth Gresser and her partner Barbara Johnson opened their beautiful, modern, art-filled home to LDE-DC and Arts Works guests to celebrate the publication of Ruth's first cookbook Kitchen Workshop - Pizza and Carla Hall's latest cookbook Carla's Comfort Foods. Carla and Ruth entertained the group of 41 contributing guests with demonstrations of recipes from their books. The FUNraiser was held to support LDE-DC scholarships and Arts Works, a non-profit whose mission is to create stronger community through the arts. Barbara Johnson is its executive director.
