Hill Center is thrilled to welcome back celebrated Chef Amy Brandwein!
The menu for this class is still to come, but be sure to reserve your ticket while you still can!
At Centrolina restaurant and market in CityCenterDC, Chef Owner Amy Brandwein shows Washingtonians the versatility and delicacy of Italian cuisine. The five-time James Beard Foundation Award nominee believes food should taste as good as it does in Italy, plated with poise, and viewed through the seasonal lens of the Mid-Atlantic — tenets she instills in her fast-casual project, Piccolina, an osteria that she opened across the alley from Centrolina in July 2019.
Brandwein and her flagship restaurant have earned many accolades, including being a James Beard Foundation Award finalist for five years (2022, 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017) in the Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic category; 2018 Chef of the Year at the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington RAMMY Awards; & other RAMMY Award nominations, including Splendid Holidays at Home Offerings (2020), Upscale Casual Restaurant of the Year (2018, 2019), Chef of the Year (2018, 2017, 2016), New Restaurant of the Year (2016), and Rising Culinary Star (2007).
In spring 2015, Brandwein opened Centrolina to fanfare not just for her appealing approach to Italian cuisine, but also because of her business savvy and her position as a female chef and owner. Brandwein soon realized her accomplishments meant she needed to play a larger role for the culinary industry and become an example for women chefs to realize their own success. In 2017, Brandwein accepted the James Beard Foundation’s prestigious Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Program fellowship. She earned additional scholarships from the foundation, and more from the International Association of Culinary Professionals.
