Champions of Change
Cathal Armstrong is the chef-owner of Restaurant Eve in Alexandria, VA and is one of Food & Wine magazine's Ten Best New Chefs of 2006. The talented chef grew up in Dublin, Ireland, where his father, whom he describes as, "a great natural cook," made family meals using produce from the garden. The family traveled extensively in Europe, where Armstrong was exposed to many cuisines and cultures. Armstrong and his wife, Meshelle, opened Restaurant Eve in 2004 in Alexandria, VA serving American regional cuisine from sustainably produced ingredients.
