Some days are just great and this was right up there with the best of them! I got to meet my idol, Iron Chef Bobby Flay, at the Williams-Sonoma in Annapolis, Maryland. His new book Bar Americain is a real winner. While standing in line to meet Mr. Flay and have him sign our books, we were treated to samples of his recipes:
- Pumpkin Soup with Cranberry-Maple Creme Fraiche with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Chives
- Apple Chopped Salad with Toasted Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Pomegranate Vinaigrette
- Hot Potato Chips with Blue Cheese Sauce
- Red Velvet Cupcakes
All delish and all on my “to cook” list (starting this weekend)! I can’t put this beautiful book book down. Really, I’m just too excited to blog, so for the “rest of the story” from my big day, go to Cindy Dyer’s blog — my friend, photographer, artist, and designer extraordinaire!
And why am I the sneeze guard heiress? It’s all tongue-in-cheek to provoke a grin and pique some interest; however, my dad, Johnny Garneau really did invent the sneeze guard.
