Every so often I have to pinch myself to remind me just how much I enjoy my profession. I get to meet and work with some of the most amazing people.
So, it's such a wonderful moment when i get to step back and show my appreciation for even one of the many persons I have crossed path.
Recently, I was blessed to share an evening at the Gathering of the Gourmands in honor of such a person, Cal Stamenov.
Cal has been a star in the cuisine scene of Monterey County. Bringing It Home has had the priveledge of having him on the show.
This is a well deserved honor. I love hearing the quotes to describe such a talents as Cal.
"We've enjoyed many great meals together, many great bottles of wine together, and my life is immeasurably better because of Cal."
-Chef Jeff Roger
"Cal cares for the final course as much as the first, and for me it helped with progression and growth,"
- Ben Spungin
Thank you to all the members. The food was terrific , the wine amazing, the people priceless.
