Crews Contain Market Street Fire in Leesburg

Firefighters from Leesburg, Purcellville and Ashburn worked this morning to battle a fire that began in the Yummy Pig restaurant on West Market Street. The fire was reported around 11:30 a.m.

Sorry to see this happen to any business. We wish Chef Jim and his crew the best. We will be there for the grand re-opening for sure.

Recipes from the Visiting Chef Program

Print

I am excited to announce the launch of our Kickstarter campaign to fund publishing Servings: for Wounded Warriors from the Visiting Chef Program. This is an awesome collection of recipes of the very dishes Chefs have made for Wounded Warriors and their families at the Warrior Retreat at Bull Run. This 200 plus page hardbound full color cookbook will make a nice addition to your collection or gift for someone you know who loves to cook.

I created the Visiting Chef Program as a way for chefs to give back and to make the stay special for these deserving families. We have 87 volunteer military, catering, and restaurant chefs from the Washington, DC area who have agreed to participate in the program by coming to the retreat and preparing an exceptional meal for the family on Sunday night in the main house. On Saturday evening military chefs from Presidential Food Service at the White House prepare a meal in the PenFed House. You can see the retreat and meals created by our Visiting Chefs on our Flickr page.

Our volunteer chefs bring a culinary experience to the family they almost always describe as the best meal they have had. The families learn valuable cooking tips from the Chefs, and everyone has a wonderful time. The benefits to the Warrior and their family are tremendous. We realize all our combat wounded Warrior guests suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress and their spouses report it has often been years since they have been out to a restaurant. We bring that 5-star culinary experience to them to enjoy in the relaxed comfort of the retreat.

When you purchase this book through Kickstarter you are helping us raise the money needed to publish the book and fund the Visiting Chef Program for years to come.
