Rare Photo


After almost 30 years of working in the service of the gods of the hearth, you would think that a narcissist like me would have lots of pictures of himself in uniform. But the startling truth is that I'm not sure that I have any...until now. This is a photo of me (wearing my typical dégagé -sang froid aspect) and student Pamela Pruett, taken in the late 1990's in my classroom kitchen at The Culinary Institute of America. It's from Pam's FaceBook album and was brought t0 my attention by Paul Redman, Pam's former classmate and a frequent visitor to this blog.

Thanks Paul!

If by "fair" you mean unbiased, well I don't know. I certainly tried to be.

Try reloading the page. Sometimes the pic does not come up on the first load.

Okay, I loaded the picture directly from my computer as opposed to the earlier Picassa -> Blogger route. If this new method doesn't work, I cry "uncle!."
