Chefs Cook For The Dalai Lama; Eat Local First Week Events

CAPITOL HILL—Art & Soul chef/owner Art Smith and executive chef Wes Morton cooked for the Dalai Lama over the weekend — the second time Smith has done so. They made a vegetarian dirty rice that, according to the chef's Twitter feed, was pretty popular with their guest: "Who wouldn't love a man that likes dirty rice." [EaterWire]

CHEF SHUFFLES—Tom Sietsema reported in his chat today that Cedric Maupillier, who was last seen consulting at Medium Rare, is heading to the kitchen of Mintwood. The forthcoming restaurant hopes to open by October in the space below Perry's in Adams Morgan. [WaPo]

EVENT PLANNINGEat Local First Week has got a few more events coming up on Friday, including an edible garden tour through Shaw, Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park and a 90-minute tour of Mount Pleasant that involves foraging for wineberries and walnuts (and ends with Pleasant Pops). That same evening, the Gibson hosts a cocktail party featuring something called the "urban elixirs of yesteryear." More information on prices and tickets here. [EaterWire]
