Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I had the pleasure of meeting Bruce Aidells, the esteemed author of "The Great Meat Cookbook" and "Bruce Aidells' Complete Sausage Book," at the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) conference, where my book, "The Art of Beef Cutting," was honored with an IACP nomination in the Food and Beverage Reference/Technical category. It seemed destined for our culinary journeys to intertwine. For those unfamiliar with Bruce, you likely recognize him as the mastermind behind your favorite chicken sausage – yeah, that's Bruce; he's the genius behind that creation. Over the years, our connection deepened as we shared a passion for meat and occasionally indulged in bourbon during various book signing events.

May your celebrations be enriched with delightful flavors and the company of good friends.
