The March/April issue (pictured at right) is selling briskly, and, even better, is bringing in a lot of new subscribers. Many of you are receiving this newsletter for the first time this week -- welcome! I hope you enjoy it.
Here's advance notice on two events here in New Orleans -- on Friday, April 17, Chef Chad Matrana, executive chef at Amici Ristorante is hosting a wine dinner with guest chef Jasper Mirabile, Jr. of Jasper's in Kansas City. Limited seating is available; see the menu and other details here. The menu is fantastic, I'm really looking forward to it.
A weekend-long celebration of the re-opening of the long-anticipated Southern Food & Beverage Museum kicks off Friday night with a Patron's Party and gala. Entrance to the museum is free on Saturday and Sunday; there will be cooking demonstrations, lectures, and other festivities. More information can be found here.
It's our Third Anniversary--
That's 22 magazines with more than 1,300 exclusive recipes, all for just $80. Most of the recipes do not appear anywhere else; I occasionally publish one of the magazine recipes on the newsletter, but not very often. More details and the order form can be found here.
It's spring festival season - see our calendar below. Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy this week's recipes, share them with family and friends, and, as always, let me know what's on your mind.
Susan Ford, President
