Back from the Desert,Thirsty for Food Wishes


I'm back from Arizona after a very relaxing week of golfing, watching baseball, and enjoying gorgeous weather that can best be described as the exact opposite of San Francisco. Hot and dry with just enough breeze to carry the smell of grilling hot dogs to my well-lotioned nose. It was great fun, but I’m ready to get back to business.

I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to Anna, who by all accounts did a masterful job of moderating the blog. I know you guys aren’t used to prompt, polite, and thoughtful replies to your questions, but I thought you handled it very well. Stay tuned for a brand new video Monday!

Welcome back, Chef! It's springtime but here on the East Coast it still feels like winter! Arizona was a good call.

Did you eat at anyplace noteworthy while you were there?

Welcome back chef John, just recently found your website. Planning on trying out alot of your recipes at work an at home. already made the warm bacon dressing recipe, everyone loved it. PS, did you make a sandcastle video?

Chef John said...

Sorry, no sandcastles!

Chris, was mostly casual and ballpark food, but did have a world-class steak at Michael Dominicks. Was amazing.

About time you took a vacation! Amazes me how you respond to mail, film everything so clearly, narrate it all, blog everything, etc. You go hard Chef.
