Washington Post highlights Chef Channon's cooking
When Channon Mondoux presented a cooking demonstration at Washington D.C.'s Sur La Table in September 2009, the Washington Post's assistant food editor Bonnie Benwick was in attendance. The next day in the Post's food blog All We Can Eat, Benwick wrote about the recipes Chef Channn prepared from her e-cookbook, and raved about the stuffed grapeleaves mad "the old, oldfashioned way... and they were some of the best I've had."
