Arts Council founder Joy Mosko said she approached Chef Nic Wisecarver, formerly of Mermaids Bar & Bistro, to participate. “He was excited about it,” Mosko said. “So I met with the ladies and hashed out the details.” The ladies - Bonnie Tanner and Lois Mateus - also opened their kitchens up to the participating chefs.
