The Lousy Chef...
So the journey to the kitchen begins! Last night Nancy Stohs, editor from the Journal-Sentinel, and a photographer came to our house. After some nerves on my part, especially at hearing that they wanted me to cook something, it really was a lot of fun! To catch some of you up, I entered a contest called "Lousy Chef" in the Journal-Sentinel. Looking back, I think it was the title "Do you burn water?" that caught my eye. I wrote an essay about how I wooed Tony by buying the makings for a wonderful, gourmet dinner, only to turn to him, smile, and he made it.
I share the title of "Lousy Chef" with a gentleman named George, whom I have yet to meet. I am thrilled not to be singled out, and to share this honor with another.
George and I get to have cooking lessons at MATC in April. We also get to learn from chefs from Milwaukee area restaurants such as Bartolotta's and Crazy Water. I get pastry lessons from the pastry chef at the Pfister too!!!
The first article will be in the paper on Wednesday, April 7th in the Food section. I hope they are kind with me!
