lots of updates

so many things have happened since I last posted, including things that happened before I posted. Hmmm. Ok. So I was a speaker at Satchmo Fest, this great festival held each summer to celebrate the life of Louis Armstrong. This year, the presentations were planned by my buddy John who asked me to give talk about Louis' red beans and rice recipe. John began to explain the recipe came from this out of print cookbook titled "Red Beans and Ricely Yours" till I told him it wasn't out of print anymore, since SoFAB had republished it. I had a great time talking about and eating some beans, hearing Louis stories and John later told me that everyone who attended said it was their favorite ending to Satchmo Fest. Maybe I can do a bit more research and give an updated version of the talk next year...

The I went to San Francisco, which I already wrote about. Got back and turned around to go to Kendall College, in Chicago where our Restaurant Restorative exhibit is currently on display until September 21. They showed the museum some wonderful hospitality and had a reception where they served some killer crab cakes, mini grit cakes with grillades (so delish that my vegetarian friend ate several) and some scrumptious gumbo. Many thanks to Chef Billy Alexander, a southern boy from Mo-Beel, who did the culinary honors. Almost 100 people came to see the exhibit and taste the goodies, representing many facets of the food industry, from chefs and food product testers to culinary historians and gourmet club members.

I got home and did some laundry and now am headed to Memphis tomorrow to be on TV Thursday the 6th to promote our menu Collecting Event/Fundraising Dinner at Hunt Phelan September 17 (I'll be on Live at 9, for those of you in the area) and have a book event later that day at the Cotton Museum from 11-1 , where we will be selling, you guessed it, Red Beans and Ricely Yours. I'll post next week and let you know how it went. Time to put the laundry in the suitcase...

The Cotton Museum will never be the same. You were definitely the belle of the ball. Everyone loved you as much as they loved the free food and that is a rare accomplishment indeed!
