Leading a “Kitchen Brigade” in Houston (Mar. 9, 2014)
Dee summed it up: teaching Umbrian rural cooking in the US is “leading a kitchen brigade”! Mille grazie, Pauline and Dan, for welcoming the Houston “kitchen brigade” into your home, including not just your friends and Pauline’s yoga students but Dee and Ruth and Mike (who’d all toured with me in Umbria, recently and decades ago!).
…and thanks to all in the “brigade” so enthusiastically joined in on the preparing of our Umbrian feast. Glad to connect with each of you as you introduced yourselves around the table between our multiple courses.
A few comments:
“Ok, it was a journey getting you here and I’m glad we did it because this is a rocking party! Thank you for being easy-going and forgive me for too few cutting boards- and next time, more bowls….! Perhaps we will see you in Umbria with a yoga group…. “ Pauline“So great to see you so soon! Great to eat as we did last year…and watch you “lead a kitchen brigade” to feed us!” Dee
