OMG, just saw the post about the Sutler. I completely am sad about my lunch salad today. I want a General Custer Turkey sandwich
Every time I see Anne Clayton, I ask her about their potato salad and the chicken artichoke soup from Clayton Blackmon. Those two foods were lunchtime staples for me in the 90s'. When we first opened, I gave her a coconut pie while delivering my first wedding cake at Cheekwood and she loved it. I knew Dulce would be OK as a new business if Anne Clayton liked my food.
Dear Ms. Gavigan -
Thank you so much for making your ramen. I have wanted to attend one of your fabulous evenings for some time and feel guilty for not supporting you more. After reading all the chat, I just wanted to let you know that as a food professional who makes everything from scratch, I have always thought your prices seem perfectly reasonable. It's homemade, it's delicious, it's an experience. I also love Kien Giang. And when I'm in New York next month, I might go to Le Bernadin for lunch. Whatever. It's food. It's an avocation. It's America - so charge whatever you want. If people like it, they'll pay for it. If not, they won't and you can continue with your day job. I love hearing about people trying new ideas and doing something fun. Let's just relax. And eat something delicious.
Taziki's in Green Hills. At least once a week. Also, went to dinner (YUM) at Smiling Elephant last Saturday and saw people getting take out. It has just never occurred to me. Now, what to do on the other 5 nights of the week.
Geraldine knows what she is doing - chess pies are not easy to produce consistently and she is lovely. Sam Tucker is FABULOUS - should be in an interesting class. He and I taught chocolate / pastry techniques to our kids' class at Percy Priest a couple of years ago.
I am grateful for our wonderful clients who allow us to do what we love for a living. For my terrific, talented beautiful staff who work so hard every day. For my family, who put up with a mom / wife in the food business. And for Kalamatas and Kien Giang for making delicious, consistent affordable meals for me and my family when I am too tired to cook non-desserts.
Catbird Seat was mentioned in Town and Country this month. Can't wait to go!
