Recently, I was given the amazing opportunity to check out a Midnight Brunch. Midnight Brunch? Ya. Crazy right? Though I have known Emily who runs Midnight Brunch for a while, I have never been able to attend one of her famous events – they are pricey! Well last Thursday, I found out why they’re so pricey, because they are decadent and super fun. How was I able to go you ask? Well, Kitchenaid and their Cooks for the Cure campaign made it possible. Cooks for the Cure is a program that “gives people with a passion for cooking a way to support the fight against breast cancer.” The program inspires people who love to cook to throw fundraiser dinners (a perfect use for Zokos) and engage in other fundraising activities to support the Susan G. Komen foundation.
In addition to Emily’s amazing cooking I got the chance to hang with some old friends and some new ones like Yvo of Feisty Foodie (pictured above)! Here at Zokos, we were inspired by such an amazing event and the partnership between Midnight Brunch and Kitchenaid. It was a wonderful model for how us in the food world can use our talents for cooking and throwing parties for good!
