My son visited your restaurant and you signed your cookbook for me several years ago. Well, I have been cooking for 40 years and everyone says I am a good cook. Your cookbook is my favorite! And I have many. Thank you for your delicious combinations of great foods, your artistry in the kitchen and for sharing your talents with the world. I grab it every time I want something really good to eat. Thanks, Chris, too for a great gift!!
