And “Dish It Up,” an annual fundraiser for Women Against Abuse, takes place at the WHYY studios, 6th and Race Streets, on Thursday, March 26th.

“It’s the only female chef competition in Philadelphia, and we have some of the greatest female chefs,” says Women Against Abuse executive director Jeannine Lisitski (photo below).  “The chefs are competing for the Purple Dish award: they make food with the element of purple, which is the anti-domestic-violence color.”
