A Fine Chef in her Own Right

| | Comments (2)

Boy was I tongue-tied this afternoon when TV celebrity chef Sara Moulton from Gourmet Magazine stepped up to the candy counter at The Chocolate Moose. I usually can't bear to admit I recognize television personalities to their faces. I get very embarrassed and can't think of a single original thing to say. But Sara appeared so laid back and normal, I had no trouble admitting I was a fan and was a bit nervous. She ended up having some coffee and picking out a small box of truffles and our most popular chocolate dipped dried fruit to take home. I hope she likes them and comes back for more. Sara said she's about to go to a new network and is excited for a change in venue. She also complained about the demise of what she called "educational" cooking shows. I agree with her 100 percent. There are so many zany cooking shows on tv right now, I would have to watch the screen 24 hours a day to see them all. And who can possibly try that many recipes in one lifetime? I'd rather let a pro like Sara Moulton help me perfect the skills I already have with the recipe collection I know and love.

Just after Sara left, Suzanne & I mused that we should keep a camera in the store for moments like that where we could shoot one of us with the "famous person" and get it up on the wall, like The Stage Deli in NYC. Too little, too late, John?
