Last Sunday evening was a dream come true for a professional chef. Imagine a black- tie dinner, specifically designed for a gastronomic society, along with the fine company of those devoted to the world of eating and drinking. It was truly an honor to be inducted into the world’s oldest culinary society, La Chaine des Rotisseurs, which dates back to the 12th century, along with chef Ryan Kelly and Aaron Radman of Roy’s restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota. The Who’s Who of members throughout the Southeast attended and toasted host Larry Krams for an outstanding weekend. Another toast to daughter Sherri, about to open C’est Cheese later this month (across from Rooms to Go), whose course of blue cheese with truffle honey won the applause of all the attendees. I promise to take my vow seriously and continue the pursuit of excellence (and consumption) of fine foods and wine.
