As a longtime supporter of Team Hidi and The Giving Kitchen, I could not have been more excited and humbled to attend a Guest Chef Dinner at Staplehouse last Friday night (queue Katy Perry). It was such an honor to be under this roof and share an amazing six-course meal prepared by some of Atlanta's most dedicated and talented chefs and served by a knowledgable and friendly waitstaff. Even the valet was beaming ear to ear on our way out.

I know Ryan has a big 'ole proud smile on his face as his shared dream takes off on the wings of a thousand paper cranes. 

PS: Hugh, if I'm lucky enough for you to even glance at this…thanks for the selfie. 

[Guest Chefs: Josh Hopkins and Richard Neal.]
