  1. Sethro - Along with your talent in pastry you have proven (here) to be an excellent writer as well. It appears to me that what might be best for you as you move forward, and you will move forward from this experience, is that you find an investor as passionate as you are so that you can create AND control the way you want to cook. I know that is not as easy as it sounds, however from my own personal experience (I always considered my self the "second bannana") when that happens you will find the fulfillment and creative outlet you deserve.
  2. Hello All. My first time to post a pic here. I've been down for a couple of weeks with bronchitis. Yesterday, for the first day in two weeks, I started feeling good and decided to crank out some croissant dough (Nancy Silverton's recipe.) Ended up making croissant, pain au chocolate and morning buns.
  3. Good point Gordo! But didn't the "execs' encourage her to do that? To lose the French angle.
  4. To quote a post from another site: Apparently Ilan, Elia and Sam learned nothing from the "hairgate" episode. I wonder how they feel now knowing Colicchio wanted them sent packing and Marcel awarded the winner by default. I can't imagine darkening the door of the three "slime balls" places of employment. I imagine they are all too stupid to feel any kind of embarrassment regarding their behavior. Do we know for sure if there is another season of Top Chef taking place? Ugh.
  5. This was in the San Francisco Chronicle a few weeks ago regarding our "favorite" contestant Marissa!
  6. Rodney, please post that recipe! Wow! I promise I'll book a massage if you do!
  7. Yuck! Everytime I've made a purchase at this place, the product has been stale. And they aren't nice about replacing it with one that isn't. Yeah, like three tops. Take in a classic film at the Stanford Theatre. We have the Packard's to thank for that gem. It's been mentioned - Four Season's is barely in East Palo Alto and certainly not the "sketchy" area AND you have a car. Have fun! Fleur de Cocao in Los Gatos for sure!! I'd give anything to have that shop in the area I live in. Los Gatos is charming and you might run in to Peggy Fleming!
  8. Congrats Tim. I can't wait to hear about your new venture.

    Top Chef

    I agree Holly. Dave is a tiresome, bitter "queen" and he grated on my nerves much more then Tiffani(and I'm no fan of hers.) Dave's claiming his professionalism on national television was hilarious and short sighted. Isn't he unemployed right now? He certainly did himself no favors last night.
  10. Well I guess if your body can metabolize chlorocarbons there's nothing unhealthy about Splenda.
  11. Sorry, devil's advocate here....Salt content? Splenda? How is that better for your health? Not being snotty, but wondering.

    Top Chef

    I was humored at how humbled the Top Chef judges behaved with the cream of the crop from the Napa Valley in attendence. Too bad this series hasn't achieved that kind of level more often.
