Hi 👋I’m @chefjohannahellrigl
, Culinary Director & Partner for Fat Baby Inc. Restaurant Group! Between @doimoidc
on 14th St Corridor & @proofdc
in Penn Quarter, I’m excited to give you a sneak peek into my food-filled days at our restaurants!
A little bit about me: I grew up in the restaurant industry between NY & Italy because my dad was a chef. My whole life seemed to revolve around it- so when it came my time to pick what I wanted to do with my life, I decided to study international affairs at GWU and work for a democracy building organization! Such a rebel, I know 😊 I worked with women from around the globe in 61 countries and traveled to a good amount of those places- and became fascinated with the amazing spices, dishes & flavors I discovered along the way. Thanks to those women I was trying to help, I spent more time thinking about food than politics, so in return they really helped me finally make my way back “home”. Those memories are what help me do what I do today- because it’s all about what happens when people come together around food… and I love watching that from our kitchens! #YelpDCTakeoverTuesday
