Flanagan's table and Ilma Lopez Present: Fabulous Femmes

We are so lucky to call Ilma Lopez (Piccolo and, most recently, Caiola's) a client and a friend. We were equally lucky to have been present at Fabulous Femmes, an all star collaboration benefit for the The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital at Maine Medical Center hosted by Lopez and Flanagan's Table.

The lineup included Chefs:

Kim Rodgers [Hugo's Restaurant]
Briana Holt [Tandem Coffee]

Including amazing treats by:

Alysia Zoidis [East End Cupcakes]
Leigh Kellis [The Holy Donut]

Wine pairings with: Erica Archer [Wine Wise]
And drinks by: Briana Lopez [Liquid Riot Bottling Company]

We talked with the chefs about what drew them to participating in the event.

One of the great pleasures of our work is that we get to spend time with many insanely talented folks we love and look up to. Last night at Flanagan's Table we were presented with one of those occasions.

The event presented a six course tasting to benefit the Maine-based organization Full Plates Full Potential. The lineup included Steve Corry, Rob Evans, Sam Hayward, Jeff Landry, Larry Matthews and Lee Skawinski. Arlin Smith hosted the event. That that we are able to work in proximity to some of these amazing folks—and to be fortunate to call several our clients—is beyond an honor.
