Dished: Obamas Host Seder Tonight

passover 2010
  • President Obama may not be a member of the tribe, but that's not stopping him from holding a Passover seder at the White House this Monday, April 18. This will be the president's third seder since taking office, a tradition started by staffers on the campaign trail in 2008. Find out more here.
  • Going to Taste of Arlington on May 22? Get a discounted ticket -- $15 instead of $25. More than 40 area restaurants are participating, including Lebanese Taverna, The Melting Pot, Rustico, La Tascoa, Sushi Rock, and Sweetgreen. Details and more deals at The Feast.
  • We love chocolate and all, but we prefer to eat our bon bons instead of wear them. Not so at Sweet Charity, the annual gala for the Heart of American Foundation, which has gained popularity for its sweet and savory tasting stations, silent and live auctions, and, of course, a chocolate fashion show featuring confectioned outfits strutting down the runway. Find out more at The Feast.
  • Carla Hall, now is your moment! The lone D.C.-based Top Chef star without her own restaurant (though she does have her own cookie company, Alchemy) will star in the recently announced ABC talk show "The Chew." Hall will co-star with Food Network's Mario Batali and Michael Symon, nutrition expert Daphne Oz, and much to our confusion, Clinton Kelley from TLC's "What Not to Wear." Maybe he'll be making over unstylish dishes? Read more at The Feast.
