Hello Detroit Harmonie board, and welcome to the fifth edition of our weekly board newsletter. What a weekend! The Top Chef Detroit Semi-Finals were incredible. So many amazing chefs with great stories participated, and it was an honor to eat their food and here about their passion for community. We're still tabulating the final scores, but when we know the finalists, you'll bee the first to know.
Also, mad props to Searching for Sugarman for winning best documentary last night. If you haven't seen this instant Detroit classic, do it now.
