Giada Visits Wilmington and GLOW – 2017

Celebrity Chef Giada DiLaurentiis visited Wilmington in late January 2017 to share her signature culinary style and support the Girls Leadership Academy of Wilmington.

Three events were scheduled: a dinner for no more than fifteen couples in a private home, and public breakfast and lunch events which were held at the Country Club of Landfall.  Chef Giada curated an italian inspired menu and worked with locally-sourced Wilmington chefs for breakfast and lunch. Chef Bobby Zimmerman, owner of True Blue Butcher and Table, sourced the ingredients and led the culinary team over several days.

Phillip L. Clark of OmniStar Financial Group said the event was a huge success.  He chaired the first event in 2016 which featured Emeril and chaired the culinary committee for Giada. “we set new records while educating the public about GLOW”.  “We are already working on 2018” said Clark, which he says will be “over the top”.
