Barbara Fairchild, a past inductee in the James Beard Foundation’s “Who’s Who in American Food & Beverage,” is the former, long-time Editor-in-Chief of Bon Appetit Magazine. She currently serves at the Chair of the L.A. Council for C-CAP (Careers through Culinary Arts Program) and also is a member of the National Board of Directors for C-CAP.
In normal times Barbara dines out frequently at a wide variety of restaurants. For the past pandemic year Barbara has stayed safely at home with restaurant dining on the far back burner. Barbara recently broke the fast with a celebratory birthday meal on the original patio of Spago Beverly Hills (with proper social distancing of the tables.) Barbara shares the memorable experience with us.
She also provides us with an overview of C-CAP and the upcoming virtual culinary fundraising event (“A Taste of C-CAP – 2021 Virtual Annual Gala) they are presenting nationally on Thursday evening, April 29th with culinary celebrity Carla Hall as the honoree (and hosted by Marcus Samuelsson) and showcasing nationwide Celebrity Chefs. Giving options include a meal (delivered by Goldbelly) prepared by Chef Marcus Samuelsson or Chef Carla Hall to be finished in the home kitchen.
