    Hi Amanda, did you mean to squash? There are some big names going into this :) I’m very excited. Pretty nervous myself!!

    Oh man.

    I _LOVE_ beets. The gf’s nickname is actually Beets. I have to step up to the place on this one.

    Thanks for the tip-off on Ad-Hoc as well –I enjoyed Bouchon so my copy of Ad-Hoc (according to chapters) has been shipped. Maybe it will show up and take me out of this vancouver gloom.

    Also: Pourhouse in gastown –have you tried? I’ve heard good things.

    Mine is done. I will be posting it early next week because I am up to my elbows in pumpkin this week … :)
