Smith was inducted into the American Chef Corps, the official network of chefs from across the country who have agreed to serve as resources to the Department of State assisting in the preparation of meals for foreign leaders, and participating in public diplomacy programs that engage foreign audiences. Her husband and partner, television veteran Dan Gasby, is Chairman of B. Smith Enterprises.
