Chef Sandy Says…

corkPopWhat an amazing week I’ve had in the cooking school. It is pure joy getting to meet so many fascinating folks…a superior court judge, a member of Seal Team 10, an Atlanta Falcon, more than a couple of newly engaged or ‘just married’ couples, new parents on their first night out since the arrival of their first little one…and that’s just this week! Some came in ‘just friends’…many left with a claim to new friends. And THAT is why I do what I do. Yeah, we made some fabulous Greek food, explored vegan fare, prepared dinner for two…but the CONNECTIONS discovered, or made…it satisfies my soul like nothing else.

The smiles, the laughter, the authenticity of it all… I can hardly wait to meet my next class. Food is powerful stuff.

Ever my best to those who’ve been and to those on their way,

Chef Sandy
