Kathleen Blake

The Rusty Spoon, Orlando, FL

To celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re partnering with Audi to create a dinner series featuring talented and inspiring graduates from our Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership (WEL) program founded by Audi. As part of the Foundation’s commitment to advancing women in the industry and Audi’s #DriveProgress initiative, we’re celebrating women in culinary pushing for change. Through #DriveProgress, Audi is committed to cultivating and promoting a culture that enables women to achieve their highest potential by removing barriers to equity, inclusivity, growth and development.

Come to the Beard House as WEL Fellow and four-time Beard Award semifinalist Kathleen Blake brings the farm-to-table delights of her acclaimed eatery the Rusty Spoon up north!
