Around this time last year, I was gathering stories about food and Christmas to run on Chow Bella when my friend (and one of my favorite writers) Kim Porter mused, "I sure wish we could read these aloud."
Wish granted, thanks to Charlie Levy and the other nice folks at Crescent Ballroom, who gave Chow Bella the stage last December -- and twice more this year, for our writers to tell stories about love & food and heat & food.
But Christmas (as you'll learn if you come to this year's "Eating Christmas") is my favorite, so I was thrilled when we were invited back again. Check out our line-up:

"Eating Christmas" will begin at 7 pm, Tuesday, December 17 at Crescent Ballroom. Admission is free (with food and drink for sale) but we hope you bring a can or two to benefit St. Mary's Food Bank.
