Michael is in Washington D.C. today for the Heart’s Delight Wine Tasting & Auction with master winemakers, chefs and distinguished guests who will play and bid in the Nation’s Capital to benefit the American Heart Association. Chef’s friend and first Harry’s pop-up victim Gabrielle Hamilton has participated for the past four years and this weekend joins new Chicago contingent Paul Kahan, Graham Elliot, and Stephanie Izard, as well as Boston’s Jamie Bissonette, David Myer from Los Angeles… You get the picture.
