Sounds rather dramatic, doesn’t it? Like launching a boat only without the bottle of champagne smashed across the bow. Or hurling books randomly out a window.
We did have some drinks though.
The launch – organized by publisher Chelsea Green – took place this past Friday evening at the wonderful culinary store of Chef Courtney Contos. Some of you will know her from my first DVD set “The Gourmet Butcher”… Courtney co-presented the course, showing how to turn some of my table-ready cuts into delectable gourmet dishes. Here she is with my co-author Karen Coshof.
Despite the totally horrible weather (teeming rain on icy roads), about forty people showed up to party. We ate some delicious thingies from Sugarsnap Catering (the Gorgonzola-stuffed dates were voted “favorite”), and caught up on the news from each other.
All in all, a delightful event. With speeches!
