This past weekend I headed to beautiful St. Simons Island for a Culinary Affair benefiting TALICA: The Teaching & Learning Initiative for Central America! Guests were treated to a 5 course meal prepared by top chefs from the area and as far as Nova Scotia!

The affair was coordinated by Sue Ellen Wortzel, founding director of TALICA and hosted by Coastal Kitchen, owned by Jeff Montaigne.
