Happy Mother’s Day Weekend!

As most visitors to this blog well know, I do not show myself during these cooking video clips. Why? Is it my “face for radio?” Is it my incredible shyness? Am I trying to be the complete antithesis of the FoodTV Chef? Is it part of the terms of my witness relocation program? I cannot confirm or deny any of these reasons, but I will say that this is my Mom’s number one complaint with the site. While she loves the site, and is very proud of all the hard work that has gone into it, she is tired of her friends constantly asking her, “What does your son look like? “Why can’t we see your son?” “What the hell is wrong with your son?” Well, you get the idea.

So, while all the other video bloggers are filming and posting touching Mother’s Day tributes, sadly I am forced to use someone else’s. Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms that enjoy this site, especially my Mother-in-law Peggy, and sister Valerie! And, from her anonymous son Chef John…Happy Mother’s Day to my mom Pauline! I love you, and miss you, and hope to see you soon. Enjoy the clip.

Happy Mom's Day, Pauline, and thanks for sharing your terrific, funny, and wonderful son with our family. I really wish you were here so we could celebrate together!

John's mother, Pauline is a great cook and John comes from a close-knit family of foodies. Since they all live near one another on the East Coast, we feel especially lucky to have John here with us on the West Coast.

Imagine if you can, the most beautiful holiday and family meals. It is our great luck to have such a talented son-in-law, who along with our beautiful daughter provide delicious food, laughter, even a magic trick, or two, for which we are always so thankful.

My Mother's Day wish to all mothers viewing John's videos is that when your daughter marries, I hope she gives you a son-in-law that will treat you as special as Chef John treats me. I am very blessed!


BTW folks, John does not film himself in his videos because he doesn't like being in front of a camera. (I can't begin to tell you hard it is to get a picture of him, but I keep trying!)

For some reason I always thought Chef John is the guy on the top right of this web site :) Either way I think he is an excellent Chef with a great sense of humor and I just love his videos! As a matter of fact I have set his site as my browser's home page!

I never was interested in cooking before but since I bumped into his site I got totally hooked and I am now cooking on a daily basis and just can't wait to try something new and impress my wife who by the way is very thankful and just can't believe the miracle :)

Best Regards,
