I was honored to speak to a lovely group of seniors yesterday at Lifespan in Buckhead. I talked about my career, my transition into the kitchen, creating MetroFresh and my book. I think this nice group of ladies (and one man) enjoyed the hour presentation. At least they listen intently and didn't throw any rotten tomatoes at me. I'd love to come speak to your garden club, book club, dinner club, or drinking club (especially your drinking club.) If you have a group that is looking for an evening program let me know.
The neat thing was being able to honor my father. His presence, even though he's now gone from us, is great. He's all over my book, all over my restaurant, and certainly all over my life. I feel so fortunate that I had a great relationship with a great man, who gave me the courage to take chances, taught me how to treat people with kindness and respect, and the value of living a good life. It's easy to not "miss" him when I feel him every day, especially when I'm able to tell his story through my life. That's an honor and I cherish it.
I don't know what's happened to my brain today. For some reason, every time I go to the the back of the kitchen, to the back refrigerator, I go with intention, knowing what I'm seeking, but then as soon as I get there, I completely forget why I went and what I need. It takes me a moment, and then it comes to me, but really, where is my head? Maybe I stayed up past my bedtime last night. Who knows?
Anyway, come see us today and have a great one!
