I really didn’t even expect to go to this party I ended up there because my friend Judy graciously took me right after stuffing our faces at Bar Boulud.  (Her invite via Chef Bradford Thompson.) I’m so glad that I went with her because I got to snap some  quick pics of  some cast members of  “Top Chef Just Desserts” and amazing chefs!
