Today's spotlight is Dame Aviva Goldfarb, a member of DC Les Dames d'Escoffier since 2010! We had fun interviewing her and wait till you find out what profession she chose if she wasn't currently the owner of the Six O'Clock Scramble, a successful meal planning service, a prolific cookbook author and probably one of the most savvy entrepreneurs in the DC area!
Best Thing About Being A DC Dame: The food and wine at the potlucks (wink, wink)
Favorite Kitchen Utensil: Citrus squeezer-I use it almost every day because I use lemons and limes so much in my cooking and concocting- they just brighten the flavor of al lost everything without extra calories, salt or fat and they are fun to squeeze!
Favorite DC restaurant: The Red Hen (hard to choose, I’ve only been to most places once!)
Thoughts about the DC Food Scene: Getting more interesting all the time and cocktails have come a million miles—I could make a dinner of them easily!
If I didn't have this profession, my profession would be: Bartender
Thoughts on the future of food for our children: I am thrilled to see so many kids developing advanced palates and an interest in cooking from scratch. I hope kids’ menus can keep up (thank you, Equinox!).
