Cooking for a Cause

Posted By on Wed, May 12, 2010 at 6:00 AM

I am prepping for a dinner right now. Well, I should be. I have sold my soul for the evening. I am waiter, dishwasher and chef, all at the same time.

I have donated my time and cooking skills for "A Chef's Affaire." I offered to cook an in-home meal with wine pairings for eight people with wine parings. Not a bad gig but very time consuming.

I am a pro, but this is taking me a long time. I am, however, putting my heart—and my best cooking—into the meal: spinach soup with lobster, veal loin, marinated flank steak, salad with peanut sauce.

The fun is about to start. I get to show up at a beautiful home by the river in Eagle and cook. Because I was auctioned off as much as my cooking skills were, it is assumed that I will also provide the live entertainment. And I can do that: good stories, cooking tips, bragging about this or that dish.

I'm looking forward to doing my part in making the world a better place by doing what I love to do.
