Richard Blais Cooked for Me

Yes, you read that right.  Earlier this summer – Top Chef All Star winner – Richard Blais cooked a fabulous dish for me.  I had the pleasure of judging a quickfire challenge during the Orange County stop of Top Chef: The Tour.  This was such a huge moment for me because I absolutely adore Richard Blais.  Like big puffy heart adore him.  I may have had a minor fan-girl moment when we posed for a photo together.

Even more awesome?  I got to scratch off another bucket list item.

You can read all about how I did at the judges table and who’s dish I thought was the best over at The Trend Tribe.


A couple of housekeeping items I’d love to share with you.
