Join MSBA President Hon. Mark Scurti for a virtual cooking class, hosted by Chef Nancy Longo of Pierpoint Restaurant and prepare a delicious Cajun meal to celebrate Mardi Gras!. This month will include MSBA member and friend of Chef Nancy, Jay Block, who will be her Sous Chef. We hope you will join us for this fun, virtual event!
Restaurants have always played a critical role in the law community. It’s where we meet, eat and conduct our work. They allow us to entertain and meet with clients, expert witnesses, and colleagues to informally discuss business. The local restaurant industry is hurting during this time, and we want to help. The Cooking Connections series will feature celebrity chefs hosting a cooking demonstration alongside MSBA’s President Hon. Mark F. Scurti.
While there is NO FEE to participate in this class, the MSBA encourages you to make a donation (in any amount) to Show Your Soft Side. In late 2010, Baltimore was beset by one horrific case of animal abuse after another. A nursing cat was set on fire by two 13-year-olds, a gang of kids clubbed a young puppy to death in a public park, and two teens were charged with dousing a dog, later named Phoenix, in kerosene and then setting her on fire. Those hideous events turned out to be a defining moment for three women and one talented photographer in Baltimore, and Show Your Soft Side was born.
Originally envisioned to be a few posters in City schools, the campaign captured the attention of the media and was soon being shared in households from Baltimore to Brazil, and beyond. Incorporated as a non-profit in 2013, SYSS is run entirely by volunteers with the goal of ending animal abuse before it starts and generating support for the world’s animal rescue community.
Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with the YouTube live-streaming link. A link to the recipes will be included in the registration confirmation email. We look forward to “seeing” you on February 16! Bon appétit!
