Yes, Chef Dinner

Every single city I’ve visited for the “Yes, Chef” book tour has taught me something new about the community there. Whether it’s a book signing, demo, radio spot or TV interview, I’ve gotten the chance to meet so many new faces and reconnect with old friends. What has most impressed me is how each chef has interpreted the memoir in their own way, translating their thoughts into some pretty stellar menus. Read More

It’s almost as sensitive as pulling a comb through a black woman’s hair—the conversation about her natural hair itself. Held by Curl Care by Dr. Miracles, and moderated by natural hair enthusiast and blogger Keisha Goodridge,the first of four “Curlversations” took place at Ginny’s Supper Club last Thursday.

It was the first of a four-part series with many subtopics at hand over lunch provided by Red Rooster, with hairstylists and beauty editors at the center of it all.
