Everything We Ate at the de Cavel Family SIDS Foundation's Annual eat.play.give. Brunch

The de Cavel Family SIDS Foundation hosted its 16th-annual SIDS awareness brunch event — eat.play.give. — at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State over the weekend. It was a chance for attendees to eat and drink their way through food stations crafted by chefs from restaurants and epicurean destinations including Boca, Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey, Fausto, Karrikin Spirits Co., Orchids at Palm Court, Mita’s and more. There were also cocktails, wine, a silent auction, kids’ activities and live entertainment. Jean-Robert de Cavel and his wife, Annette, started their foundation after losing four-month-old daughter Tatiana to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 2002. Since then, they have raised funds for SIDS research and education.
