Chef Angel was invited to participate in the second annual Eat.Drink.Empower, a really cool event put on by Max’s Wine Dive here in Austin. While we’re invited to a lot of wonderful events throughout the year, this one really stands out.

Eat.Drink.Empower. is a showcase for Austin’s top female culinary talent and celebrates the growing number of female chefs on the rise. It also is a benefit for SafePlace, one of our favorite charities (they were our beneficiary for the TRACE Ice Cream Social as well!). Celebrating females in the culinary world and helping to end sexual & domestic violence? This one was a no brainer.

Not only did we get to work with lots of Austin’s top talent, Chef Angel also got to talk with Eater Austin in conjunction with the event, explaining how she got to this point in her career and dispensing advice to fellow female chefs. The whole article is definitely worth a read: Female Chefs Weigh In: Empowering Women in the Restaurant Industry

The event itself was a huge success. Chef Angel created an exotic chocolate milk and passion fruit dessert that wowed the guests. You can check out the full recap on Culturemap Austin.
