The podcast of my visit with Faith, Alex, and Chris of Faith’s FoodSchmooze is now available on http://foodschmooze.org  It was so much fun to talk about omelets and wine and fish….  Thanks Faith!

 

My thanks to everyone at the International Culinary Center in New York for allowing me to demo a Chocolate Souffle Omelet–everyone was so kind and enthusiastic. And if you’re thinking about culinary school, ICC is the place!

 

I had so much fun on Better Connecticut!  My thanks to Kara Sundlun and Scot Haney for being such gracious hosts!
