Two Encore Affairs fundraisers for the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra League were hosted by John Gonzales of A Chef's Kitchen, Williamsburg's premier destination for entertaining instruction in delicious cookery and fine dining. For seven years, the Chef's Kitchen dinner parties have been sold-out favorites of supporters of the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra, formerly known as the Williamsburg Symphonia. Maestro Janna Hymes was among the 52 guests who enjoyed the two events on April 17 and 20, setting aside her baton to serve as Chef Gonzales' sous chef as he prepared his favorite Skillet Corn Bread recipe. Encore Affairs, a series of parties and special events now in its ninth year, will raise close to $17,200 in the 2015-16 season.
