Booksigning for foodies

 

Vorman's Bookstore and the California School of Culinary Arts hosted a book signing of Chef Eric Ripert's new book "On the Line". What could be a more perfect afternoon, books, fine wine and gourmet food!

Menu: Starter -Venison Loin Carpaccio with berries & dark chocolate
Entree - Pan Roasted Monkfish Homage Gaudi with confit of peppers, patatas bravas & chorizo-albarino emulsion
Dessert - Chaocolate Bar - with marcona almonds, pimenton, port sorbet, dried blackberries & blackberry jus

Chef Eric was friendly, charming and very handsome, plus got to share a table with local chefs in the area and also they gave me some more local ghost stories I will share later. It was a lovely afternoon, a great break from holiday shopping!

Wow, a chef I don't know at all, I guess I'm not a very good Foodie, LOL.

Did the letter you send me include an amazing picture of an older woman? I'm really bad with names so if that was you, sorry, yes I did get it! I always think of you as Yoga Gal, LOL. Thank you!

Suzie:Don't think I send a pictue of an older woman. I send a post card from the Norton Simon and a small goddess charm.
