New Partners

It is always exciting to talk to people about SoFAB. It is even more than exciting, when they get excited too. That is what happened today at a great meeting at the Chef John Folse Culinary Institute at Nicholls State University at Thibodaux, LA. Meeting with Assistant Dean, Anne Parr, we created many bridges to a very promising long-term partnership. I can imagine easily research and exhibit partnerships. We laid that groundwork today. But I can see opportunities to work with students, create new programs and to build a future together - each institution growing stronger with the support of the other.

I am also looking forward to the Culinary Roadshow we are planning on July 28 at Savvy Gourmet. I know that all of the interesting things that people have in their closets will find their way into Savvy Gourmet. What a terrific way for people to have fun, learn a little something about their possessions and to visit with other people who are also interested in culinary gizmos.
Our culinary camp will get into gear in August. We are also planning the Invitation to the Memphis Table to be held at the Inn at Hunt Phelan in Memphis. This is taking place in September. So much is happening and we aren't open yet. Just wait until we are open!
