Monica Bhide's first novel, Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken (Bodes Well Publishing, 2016) was released Friday, September 15. Aviva Goldfarb and Amy Riolo gave her a book party on Sunday, September 18. The book has also been selected by the DC Dames as its November Book Club read. It is about an orphan's journey to fulfill what seems like an impossible dream: to feed the hungry and nourish their souls.
Olga Boikess wrote an article for the October edition of WHERE magazine about where top DC chefs go to celebrate in restaurants. Among the chefs she interviewed, Nora Pouillion, provided fascinating insights into the "new" fine dining. Since WHERE is distributed free in DC hotels; it will be a perfect way for our visiting conference Dames to know THE restaurants. It also will be a valuable tool in our hospitality room. http://www.wheretraveler.com/washington-dc/chef-talk-go-spots-special-occasions
