Ok, so this has nothing to do with education. But, it was fun. Tuesday evening my wife and I got to meet Chef Bobby Flay. He was a doing a signing for his new cookbook at Stew Leonard's in Norwalk, CT. Stew's staff had a good plan and layout for dealing with the crowd and even provided snacks and water to people in line.
Chef Flay was friendly, personable, and signed the books, took a minute to talk to people, and took pictures with everyone. He thanked us for buying his cookbooks and eating at his restaurants.
My wife and I love his shows, his recipes, and have dined at both MESA Grill and Bar Americain in NYC. We love the food. The only problem is that once you've dined at a restaurant like these, other restaurants pale in comparison. Top quality service, outstanding food, and fresh ingredients. Can't beat that.
If you like good food, especially with a southwestern flair, try some of his cookbooks and recipes. Some recipes are on his website for free too. I recommend "MESA Grill Cookbook", "Burgers, Fries, and Shakes", and "Bobby Flay's Grill It."
Enjoy! Buon Appetito!
