Max’s Empowers Female Chefs, Texas WomenBy Megan Giller | August 26, 2013 By Megan Giller | August 26, 2013
On Saturday, Max’s Wine Dive hosted its first Eat.Drink.Empower event, which featured up-and-coming female chefs from some of Austin's best restaurants and raised money for SafePlace a “local nonprofit organization dedicated to providing services for individuals and families suffering through incidents of domestic or sexual violence.”
While introducing the chefs that made each course, Max’s executive chef Erica Beneke said ecstatically that she had dreamed of such an event for a long time. Further, Beneke plans to host events like this one two to three times per year, with some of the same chefs and hopefully others. Check out our food photos below to see some of the good eats.
