I MET ALTON BROWN!!!
I can not BEGIN to tell you how excited I was to be invited to this event. A HUGE thank you to WholeFoods for hosting! Since high school, I’ve been watching Good Eats with my family. I have more dvds than I’d like to admit and a couple of his other books as well.
What a nice welcome! Loving the cover of the book. They’re my favorite episodes as well.
I was SO nervous at this point. Yes, I brought some dvds with me. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Here’s how the convo went.
Me: “Hi nice to meet you Alton. You’re awesome but you probably already knew that.”
Alton: “Aw, I don’t think so but it’s nice to hear someone say it! I’m a big dork really”
Brief argument about the difference between nerds, dorks and geeks takes place and I giggle, become even MORE star struck and take this picture.
Posing for the camera. Can you see that? His arm is totally around me… LOL I kid, I kid (but it IS people). Wondering what the signatures on the books said?
Onto the nervous eating now:
Good Eats CAKE! Chocolate, of course.
Cheese filled tarts with caramelized onions on top.
Mushroom filled filo purses
A variety of chips- taro, sweet potato, etc.
Group shot with fellow bloggers and our freshly signed books- the cover folds out into a poster.
I’ve started tho thumb through the book and all the extra tid-bits of information and pictures that didn’t make it into the shows are fantastic!
Time to lay my still star stuck head to bed. See you soon.
