In September 2012, the U.S. State Department joined forces with the James Beard Foundation to launch an innovative new program to help bridge cultural and communications gaps with other nations using a universal language: food. A year later, this very special evening will honor Ambassador Capricia Penavic Marshall, former United States Chief of Protocol, for her leadership of the Culinary Diplomacy Program. Veteran political strategist, author, educator, and syndicated newspaper columnist Donna Brazile will emcee the festivities. They are joined by honorary chair, His Excellency Claudio Bisogniero, Ambassador of Italy; as well as co-chairs David Adler, CEO and co-founder, BizBash; Ken Crerar, The Rogers Collection Extraordinary Foods; Eric Kessler, Arabella Advisors and James Beard Foundation Trustee; and Eric Michael, Occasions Caterers.
