Sassy, Spunky, Intelligent, and most of all- Powerful are just the words to describe the Celebrity Chef’s and Food Writers speaking at the Foodie Edition Event at the Sunset Center in Carmel. Guest Chef’s included Nancy Silverton, Ruth Reichel, and Evan Kleiman. Of all three, I was looking forward to meet Nancy Silverton. After watching her story on Chef’s table, I knew that I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity of having her sign a copy of her cookbooks.
Funny Story: When volunteering at my local Salvation Army Store. I would always skim through the books trying to find a steal. skimming my fingers over many book-spines; I eyed the word ‘Mozza’ Loud scream of happiness going off in my head!! BEHOLD! Nancy Silverton’s ‘Mozza Cookbook‘ right before eyes. I couldn’t believe that this cookbook, In great conditions,was at a thrift store!! That same day, I also took home bowls and a nice mug. The employee was so kind that she Charged me $1 for all four items. That means that this book was only 25 cents. Now that’s a steal.
Forward to two days ago. I found out that Nancy was going to be in town. I saw this as a sign an ran with it. My good friend offered me a comp ticket and i gladly accepted. I pretty much ‘killed two birds with one stone’ I caught up with my friend and spent my Wednesday evening seeing a cooking demo and meeting Ms. Silverton.

It can also be just a habit of ours, we want things fast. We don’t have time. But is it really that we don’t have time or we don’t attempt to make the time to nourish our bodies with the right stuff?
Here’s one helpful tip for you to start making time to prep those healthy meals. Let’s say you spend 30 minutes on the phone.

Last winter I was hired at my dream job. Williams-Sonoma. I was ecstatic to get my hands on every single product in that store and getting familiar with it. I was also lucky enough to have such and amazing staff. I worked on the floor and in the stock room(which i loved the most) I would have to take out products out to customers when they needed it. During down time, I would look at products I wasn’t familiar with and either scan it through or ask a co-worker about it. I was intrigued with the book shelf.
