Chances are, I might have come off as aloof in Aspen, but it was just the opposite. What you can’t see is that it was really a great relief to step away from the restaurant stress going on back in DC. Aspen allowed me to take a much needed deep breath and recharge before returning home to opening up my family’s second Good Stuff Eatery.
I owe a huge thank you to my partner in crime, Andrew Kaplan. Kappy is the ultimate sous-chef. He took care of my prep for the event and, more importantly, my sanity. Because of him, my dish reflected the vision in my head and I owe Kappy big time. Thanks for making it a stress-free trip man!
