chefchristina Another Garden Party success! Yesterday Freya reminded me I've been cooking at the Garden Party since 2010. Many of you know Freya founder and president of the American Garden Society as she is such an inspiration to so many of us. Ive tabled with her, drove many hours together taking turns driving, chatting on way to Summerfest, and she has taught me so many things and how hard to work for something you believe in. She came to my Culinary school graduation and I will never forget that. She always makes me feel like I can do whatever I want to go after. Im very fortunate to know her. #vegan 1d

chefchristina This is why! ...and Chef Thomas Keller says it best
"When you acknowledge, as you must, that there is no such thing as perfect food, only the idea of it, then the real purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear: to make people happy, that is what cooking is all about."
Picture of what was written on a check tonight from a happy customer. Glad they liked my recipe!
