"Top Chef" All-Star Becomes DC's “Secretary of Love & Relationships”

This story comes to us from Kate Gibbs of Destination DC:

 

“Top Chef: All Star” star Carla Hall, chef  and owner of Alchemy by Carla Hall was “sworn in” by DC City Council Chair Kwame Brown as DC’s “Secretary of Love & Relationships,” this morning at the Fairmont Hotel. With one hand raised and the other on a giant heart-shaped box of chocolates, Carla Hall promised to “help lovers who live in or visit DC to find the right recipes to ignite new relationships or reconnect with loved ones.”  After the swearing-in, the Secretary admitted to the odd staycation, advising, if the house is messy, “check into a hotel, y’all.”


She was totally delighted and explained that she’d met her husband on Match.com and their first date was at Sonoma Restaurant on the Hill.

The event served as the announcement for Destination DC’s second annual “Date Nights DC,” a February-long promotion designed to create new and exciting deals and ideas for date nights in the nation’s capital.
