looks liek a good time.

I like Luvs met a few famous chefs. actualyl quite a few.

Some that I liked were just total _____

but then the ones that I thought were going to be the ____ were actually really cool.

I metEric Ripert and I was totoaly star stuck. I couldnt undr a word. Im not a fan of him but respect the man and he was lauhging and joking and was having a blast talking to Piard and a few other people drinking wine with out a care in the world.

I still dont like reipert and a few of his opions about being a great chef but he still is impressive.

Eric Ripert. Nice.

The most famous chef that I "met" was Thomas Keller. It was at a charity event in Los Angeles when I was cooking at the Four Seasons. One of our dishes was seared scallops with a truffle-parsnip puree and morel mushrooms. as I was plating, I heard a voice say "Nice color on the scallops." I looked up and Thomas Keller was there. I didn't even know what to say at first. I was like, "Ummm. Uh. Thanks."

Nice list. I met James McDevitt. He used to have a restaurant in Napa called Budo, but it didn't last very long. He was a F&W Best New Chef in I think 2000.

Me and Maryanne at the Newport show.

The Newport show was ok, but do to crappy weather, and it being held outside in tents, it was muddy, humid .....not sure I'd return to the Newport show, unless someone I liked was doing a cooking demonstration. Had a great time at the Foxwoods show.
