The Annual Taste
the Decade fundraiser for the American Lung
Association of San Diego and Imperial Counties got swingin'
with their Fabulous Forties themed event
April 9th, 2006. Guests gathered at the historic Naval Training
Center in Point Loma for an afternoon of nonpareil entertainment
Guests were greeted
by dapper volunteers, the music of the Moonlight Serenade
Orchestra and the beautiful voices of the one and only
Violettes. Tempting sights were the polished

Enjoyed too were
the incredible foods and wines on hand. Chalk Hill Winery
was quite popular and so was Orfila Winery. Stone

crunchy straw potatoes. Chef and Owner Mathew Zappoli
of La Jolla's Fresh served up sublimely delicious crab
cakes. Ristorante Piatti had their delicious lemon raviolis. The
Fish Market/Top of the Market's head Sushi Chef Teiji Ohkawa served
up "dai ichi," or "da kine" in Hawaiian terms,
deliciously to the fight against lung disease were Chef

The Brigantine, Chef/Owner Stefano Ceresoli of Caffe Bella Italia,
