PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Dozens of chefs will be rivaling for bragging rights and to help a great cause on Wednesday at the annual Dish it Up competition at Vie on North Broad Street.

“Dish It Up is Philadelphia’s only female chef competition and it’s Women Against Abuse’s annual fundraising event,” said Jeannine Lisitski, president and executive director of Women Against Abuse. “We have Kiki Aranita from Poi Dog Philly who was actually our 2016 winner who will be back. Abigail Dahan from Parc Restaurant. Jen Grosskruger from Ocean Prime, Mary Lochary from The Rittenhouse, Caitlin Matteo from the Red Owl Tavern, and so many others.”

Kuznits: “What does Women Against Abuse think about the Me Too movement this year?”

“We think it’s amazing, because it takes the shroud and the secrecy and the stigma and the shame; it’s just another great moment in time towards progress,” said Lesitsky.
