Chef's Notes

Great Little Havana Dinner sans cigars. 10 Chairs did presidents past and present. Now March marks Women's History Month and I would like to pay homage to all women but have chosen a few of my favorites.Janice Joplin a Texas native who I saw live many times and her famous quote “ Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. Maybe a mushroom dish. Inez Milholland a suffragist in 1909 who said” I am prepared to sacrifice every so called privilege I possess in order to have a few right” Have to think Victorian. My mother Virginia Grace Williams who became a welder during the depression and continued to work for Hughes Tool Company for 45 years. Who always said you can do it even when I did not know I could. Something fried she loved that. Hillary Clinton former secretary of state and who is rumored to be running for president. They say lamb is her favorite. Harriet Tubman an African American abolitionist during the American Civil War. She escaped slavery to become a leading abolitionist and led hundreds to freedom along the Underground railroad. I have had the great fortune of working closely with women from 2 careers as a dancer and as a chef. The strength of mind and body it takes to have a career in that art is often underrated because ballet dancer look willowy and frail. False As a women chef in kitchens skill , determination & artistry make this a very demanding career, something I am proud of and have colleagues who are at the top of their game. There are thousands of women who I celebrate daily, I chose these for their hard work and diversity.
