Private Chef Dinner

A few weeks ago, I had the splendid opportunity to cook for a really fun, amazing family and their friends who rented a fabulous vacation home in Palm Springs. There were 6 adults, 2 children & 1 adorable baby girl who loves sweet pepper slices! I was recommended to them not only because of my reputation for fine, delicious food but especially because of their need to address their son’s wide-ranging food allergies and to be able to create a dinner for everyone around those restrictions.

Sharon, mom extraordinaire, party planner and photographer of the above photos, wrote the most wonderfully detailed review of the dinner on her website, Cupcakes and Cutlery:

You can also see that she’s so creative…lots of really fun party ideas for every occasion as well as being a wonderful photographer… great shots of their Palm Springs vacation and bumping into Marilyn Monroe…check it out

Food Revolution Day

We had a great turnout and coverage of Food Revolution Day at Camelot Theatre in partnership with The City of Palm Springs Bike Rodeo and Certified Farmer’s Market.

Interviewed by Bianca Rae (KESQ News Channel 3 Reporter) and had wonderful conversations with parents, kids, teacher and community members about how we can improve accessibility to healthy food at school, work and our communities as well as to inspire, educate and empower everyone to make the choice to eat real food for themselves and their families.

On May 19th, communities in over 660 cities in 62 countries gathered together and celebrated the first ever Food Revolution Day. In the 1,000+ events that took place across the world, people shared their knowledge on food and nutrition, taught their favorite recipes, educated one another about food choices, and inspired each other to stand up for real food and demand better.

A fun day!
