Tonight I taught at Draeger's in Danville, a suburb of San Francisco in the East Bay. If you haven't heard of Draeger's or been there, it's the equivalent of a culinary Disneyland. Beautifully displayed produce, seafood, meats, cheeses, and baked goods, all tempting you, saying "buy me! buy me!"---Fortunately, I get to teach in this spectacular venue with amazing staff, and products that are second to none.
Here's a peak at what it's like to be me!
The class room all set up and my three assistants, from left to right: Patience, Rose, and Lisa---they ROCK!
And there was wine!
Caramelized onion and Roquefort Tart---Amazing if I do say so myself!
This is just the vinegar shelf!
And, yeah, it's all about the cheese!
the most dangerous place in the store--the housewares department; Michael Zimmerman is a genius!
I did a bit of hat shopping for the holidays, too!
I hope you had a great day--I'm teaching at Draeger's in San Mateo tomorrow, and taking the late flight out of SFO to San Diego--there really is no place like home!
