I've Been Alive for Exactly 50 Years!

I'm going to take a few days off for my birthday, so please pardon any delays in answering emails or comments. Now that I'm old, I have to pace myself. ;) Thank you!

Happy Birthday to the best internet Chef ever. I had hoped to meet you on a recent trip to San Francisco and give you a bottle of wonderful balsamic I brought for you from Italy, but we could never link up. So, I gave it as a present to my Mom. Cheers and Happy Birthday.

orgprepdaily said...

I wish equal fun and happiness in the next fifty years, during which time your name should enter Webster's dictionary as a byword for sharing culinary awesomeness in understated hilarious manner - in the same fashion as people already use "to google" or "to xerox"

Chef John said...

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!! Your kind words are very much appreciated!!

Avin Amir Ekhtiar said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHEF!
I've tried a dozen of your recipes since I found your blog and I continue to surprise myself (and friends) with how good food can taste when I follow your recipes. I check in to your website and follow your videos on Youtube every week. You never cease to amaze. I hope you a wonderful weekend.

Quite sincerely,
An avid foodwishes follower

Melanie Tam said...

Have a great time off :))

Happy BIrthday !

Gerry Graham said...

I hope you had a great birthday. Now get back to work... I'm hungry! lol

Thanks Chef John! You are a great source of inspiration.

mama hana said...

I have a suggestion for a new food series! I think its in my best interest, and possibly yours as well, if you would consider this: Late Night Snack Edition of FoodWishes!! Recipes that are cheap, quick, EASY, and can satisfy any late night snacker who wishes to eat actual food in stead of diving into a bag of crisps then knocking oneself over while trying to race to the kitchen sink to quench one's thirst in the middle of the night. It happens. But as a devotee of your channel/blog, it think this would not only be of interest to me, but to the world. Thank you for everything and Happy Birthday to the one who can do it all!

Ilze Nel-Marais said...

Congratulations Chef John! Hope you had a great birthday. You super informative and oh so witty. Wish all youtube videos could be this entertaining. Thank you. Keep up the good work and...Enjoy! X
