A Star Was Born
Oh what a blessed day for food lovers - Today marks the birth of rock star chef Nicole Burrows! From vegan pastry culinary student in Manhattan to sous chef in Louisville to cooking instructor to the stars at a Tucson resort to head chef at fine vegetarian institution Carmelita in Seattle, Nicole has not only made an reputable name for herself nation-wide, but also made one of her oldest friends incredibly proud.
I don't need to tell you how talented this woman is, salivate over this recent menu she created at Carmelita. Anyone for a Duo of Ice Cream Sandwiches? (blackberry-mascarpone ice cream, pistachio-orange cookie / lemon curd ice cream, ginger-pine nut cookie). YUM!
Note to self: Open a restaurant with Nicole in the next 5 years.
Check out my favorite blogger Catherine's interview at a fly on the wall to learn more about Nicole and her craft.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PUMPKIN!
