I Can Die Happy Now...

Just returned from Taste of the Nation New Haven courtesy of Foodbuzz. What a fantastic event for a great cause, ending child hunger in the US with Share Our Strength. I'll be giving you the complete run down tomorrow but I just had to share a small moment with you.

Look what I came home with!

More Fast Food by Jacques Pepin

I've had Julia fondle my cheese and now I can cook with Jacques looking over my kitchen.

Jacques Pepin's Autograph in my cookbook

I stood there while Chef Pepin was signing my book gushing about how his tome, La Technique, taught me knife skills. What an blubbering idiot I must have seemed.

Still, it doesn't get any better than being the presence of one of your cooking idols.
