Rob is one of those amazing people who can fit 48 hours of life and work into 24. It's highly admirable and insanely inspiring and intimidating as heck- and it makes everyone around him look like a slacker by comparison.
Rob is such a nice guy that he will deny that this is true-- but it is.

I'll still scan for that wanderer in the desert, knowing the words will delight and tantalize the tastebuds.
Best wishes and much good fortune in stepping out into this new adventure. One day an order will come in for "Do you have that lovely chocolate dessert hushed with apricot?" and it will be me, come to claim a taste of that hauntingly-named confection.
I'll be the one in the BIG hat.
And the flavour you imagine will come streaming from the spout.

Oh, and thanks for giving me the kick to get the muscovado sugar. I'll never look back...

Verjuice, I have to agree with you that he is human, and quite normal for a human as well.
Rob, glad to meet you when you were in Los Angeles. It's a joy when I can meet fellow eGullet members like you in person. BTW, if you need another LA pastry tour, please let me know.
Food and I, we go way back ...
