Instead of a recipe – today I’m posting a very special picture, special to me anyhow. It was taken at the 2000 International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) Conference.
I first had the honor meeting Julia in 1994 when my dear friend and mentor, Barbara Fenzl, was president of IACP and I attended the conference in San Francisco. From 1999-2002 I was the producer of “The Culinary Concert” a major fundraiser for the IACP Foundation. Each year a variety of celebrity chefs would “perform” a cooking show where they cooked “in concert.” The joy of working and just being with Julia at the 2000 Culinary Concert can’t be topped! More Julia stories at another time, until then…. Bon Appetit!
