Kathleen
What I am surprised about is your real knowledge of "World Cooking" with ingredients which I doubt whether we have here.
I was " privilidged " and I mean that to attend one one the DTP forum dinners at Seybold in SanFransico in the mid 90's and it made me realise how precious this forum was - not only for the huge knowledge base - but also because the people here were "real" people. We all battled to make money and solve the problems - with very few pretenders. It is really a great shame that we are all not closer so we could meet up again

I had dinner with KT once too. Back in the 90s, in Toronto during a Comdex I think.

Do you remember, KT?

I recall a couple of DTPFOR dinners at Seybold... I got the Stale Bread Award at one of them.

And I had a very nice dim sum with Kathleen and hubby a couple or three years ago when I was in NYC. (Lunch was actually in Flushing, IIRC).

Not sure (sorry), but I am sure it wasn’t at a COMDEX meeting, as I have never been to one.

But I have been to Toronto, and loved it. Could it have been a MacWorld? I sort of remember it that way.

We went to Chinatown (Toronto has one — or two or three — of the world’s best Chinatowns); and shopped at some fabulous bookstores.

Now that I definitely remember. Were we in Flushing? I would always prefer that, but it is a bit out of the way. Nice meal, too.

Nowadays I am sure you do have them, at least in London. (After all, you have Jamie Oliver, the “naked chef” and several others). But it was rare in the 80s and 90s, I will admit.

Then, the greater part of valor is to enjoy what the natives enjoy: chops, fish, and Indian food. (I understand that my favorite London Indian place — Lal Qila — has fallen on hard times. Tsk.)

Was I there? If it was at a French place, that was Jack and my discovery, but I barely made one of those dinners as I fell and broke my elbow in the afternoon, and took a red-eye flight home instead of enjoying myself that evening!

Yeah, I know. We were (and are) real people. Let’s all whisk away a tear or two!

Tell you what: Make your way to New York or New England and I will share something wonderful with you. Jack keeps a decent wine cellar, too; don’t expect to drive back to your hotel that night!
