    Oh, wow. What a great cause! I would probably be most excited to see Ana Sortun since I just had dinner at Oleana and am still thinking about it!

  2. Alex Borodkin says:

    This sounds like a great event. Would love to win tickets and try some of Jay Murray’s Grill 23 cooking.

  3. Megan says:

    Would love to see Jody Adams!

  4. Jody Adams is such a doll, I’d love to meat her again. And Ana Sortun, of course. What a great cause!!!

  5. Shannon says:

    so many great chefs, but i’d probably say jody adams 🙂

  6. Shannon says:

    tweeted 🙂 @tri2cook

  7. Eric says:

    I would love to meet Ana Sortun!

  8. Eric says:

    And I tweeted it!

    I would probably eat gum off the bottom of Ana Sortun and Jody Adams’ shoes as I’ve dreamed about every morsel of food I’ve ever had at their restaurants. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention what a phenomenal organization PFLAG is. My sister and her wife were lucky enough to have been raised in warm, welcoming families and schools, but I know support like they’ve received isn’t as common as it should be. Thank goodness for PFLAG helping families come together and love unconditionally.

  10. Michelle Volpe says:

    Definitely Brooke Vosika, please!

  11. Taryn says:

    Great giveaway! I would LOVE to see Ana Sortum as I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Oleana but have never been.

  12. Taryn says:

    I also tweeted 🙂 (@tbren15)

  13. Michelle Volpe says:

    Posted the tweet!

  14. Nicole Ouellette says:

    It is tough to answer this because there are too many amazing chefs. I would love to see Ana Sortun. I also worked with Jaclyn Plunkett in the past, and she is incredible, so it would be wonderful to see her in this setting with a gourmet flare!

  15. Melissa says:

    I don’t know how to pick one chef – I’d be happy to see any of them! I just clicked through to the event though and see The Beelzebubs will be there, who are the voices of The Warblers on GLEE! That sounds pretty cool to me!

  16. Samantha says:

    What a great lineup for an amazing cause! I’d love to see Ana Sortun again, but everyone participating sounds fabulous. A huge fan of PFLAG as well, although it now also (happily) reminds me of the summer that I watched every single episode of Queer as Folk back to back. Must watch again.

  17. Lauren says:

    I’m excited to see Ana Sortun! Just ate at Oleana last night and it was wonderful!

  18. Everett says:

    My vote would definitly be for Susan Feniger and her latin food. I used to watch her all the time on Too Hot Tamales.

  19. Daisy says:

    It would be pretty awesome to meet Susan Feniger! and too see a couple of the chefs I already have already met / meet them again like Jody Adams and Brook Vosika.

  20. Of course I want to meet all of them. But to pick one, Jody Adams. I tweeted too 🙂

  21. Erin Wetherell says:

    Probably Steven Brand and Susan Regis from Upstairs on the Square, since that’s the only I’ve ever heard of (except for Legal Seafoods, but that doesn’t really count…)

  22. I love Jody Adams! Would be THRILLED to meet her!
