Road To The JBF: Part 3
Its all over, the dinner was a great success! Prep was smooth, although we did have 2 of the students that were scheduled to help not show up!!! All in all 4 of us got the dinner prepped, completed and executed with the gracious help of the JBH staff, whom I must say did such an excellent job of making sure the dinner was flawless.
One of the highlights of the day for me was getting to sign James Beards chef jacket which is proudly displayed at the top of the stairwell to where now is the main dining area.
Getting to work with Matt, Edgardo and our CIA student Robyn was fun, exciting and a humbling experience all at once. The whole experience is one that will never be forgotten.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible, and a special thanks to the JBH for letting us showcase our cuisine in the home of the father of American Gastronomy.
We will have many pictures to post in the next few weeks so keep checking back!
