Gentlemen--and ladies--if there's one thing I learned from the evenings I spent with the Chicks With Knives, it's that they want you to know there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. Yes, they wield sharp cutting tools...but they only use them for good, not evil. And when I say good, I mean good tasting. That's because Chicks With Knives is actually a duo of chefs, Rachael Narins and Suzanne Griswold, and the name of their monthly supper club that focuses on S.O.L.E. food.

Preparing sustainable, organic, locally-sourced, and ethical food, the pair pop-up every few weeks at a private home of a club member to serve a four-course meal starring the freshest in produce, a spotlight protein entree, and a healthy portion of whimsical innovation. Both trained chefs who work in the local food business, Narins and Griswold strive to delight and surprise their guests--usually a mix of repeat attendees and new faces--with their creations, during a leisurely evening of dining, entertainment, and getting to know people. (Incidentally, single guys, if you're tired of seeking out quality women at sub-par nightspots, you might find a CWK dinner party a refreshing change of pace.)
