I was honored to cook at Doug and Carol Bollman's house to help raise money for the Wellness Initiative. Their mission is to help improve the physical health, social and emotional development, and academic performance of low-income youth. You really can't deny that's a good thing.
I cooked a five course dinner for 30 people at the Bollman's. Everyone in attendance donated to the fund and we all had a great time. My new friend Emily (and daughter of the Bollmans) and her entire class signed an apron for me. They also stenciled in a fleur-de-lis in honor of my recent trip to New Orleans. Awesome!
