The book--the whole experience--almost feels as if I've been prepping a feast for two years. I'm waiting for the guests to arrive. No one has RSVP-ed. Some knocked on the door. Some entered the foyer and took a glass of champagne from me, a gougere or three. Some liked what they ate. Some didn't understand the flavors or the techniques. Some couldn't deal with the spice or the heat. Others others stayed for more wine, food and conversation. Those that have hung out at the table are: Adam Morgenstern of the and Patrick Comiskey of the LA Times (http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-wine14-2008may14,0,1592371.story). For those who want to know more about me, my Canadian publisher has posted a Q&A. You can read it at: http://blogs.raincoast.com/weblog/alice-feiring-q-a/. The door is still open. There's still plenty of food. Please. Come in. Thanks.
