A Lovely Honor

A friend on facebook recently reported that my name was mentioned in Barbara Fairchild's "Letter from the Editor" in the January issue of Bon Appétit. Of course I had to see what she wrote which necessitated an hour's drive in each direction to the closest Barnes and Noble as we're in the wilds of western New Jersey this week. And there I was, in Barbara's farewell letter, sandwiched between my esteemed long-time friend Lynne Rossetto Kasper (Splendid Table) and delightful new friend David Leite (Leite's Culinaria). (Bon App is moving to New York from LA which is why Barbara is stepping down as editor in chief.)As she only could mention a few of the 100's of people she worked with, I am proud to be one of these few, especially because I've always been very fond of Barbara. It will be most interesting to see what she will do next!
