We love to get mail and to share interesting news and to hear from chefs.
I write bravofan (thx for including me in the monday morning mix!), but also write celebtots. It looks like our lady of hosting may be pregnant: Click HERE
Just thought you may enjoy that :)
How's life now that Top Chef is back in full swing? I'm sure eager fans are still pumped to hear the latest scoop about the chefs.
Speaking of TC, and TC fans, I was the guest chef for a great event up in the Napa Valley this past weekend. There was a very nice woman that I met there, who is a fan of the show, and has started a blog where she replicates the winning dishes each week and talks about them....it kind of made me think of Julie/Julia, but hopefully with less butter. ;-) Anyway, I thought this girl Sara was very nice and her blog looks interesting...thought it might be of interest to you and the fans, check it out The winningdish.

P.S. I will be competing on Food Network Challenge this Sunday night at 8pm, "Edible Cities." I build San Francisco out of Rice Crispies, chocolate and sugar. The show piece was 3 1/2 feet tall & 5 1/2 feet wide. It took 40#'s of Rice Crispies, over 50#'s of chocolate and 50#'s of sugar. It was crazy!!!! I haven't been able to even look at a rice crispy treat since then! It should be entertaining to watch.
