Want to take this time to say a special "thank you" to all who have supported this segment over the past two years.  I'm told we've aired over 100 episodes!!!!  I enjoy giving you a peek inside a few of the great restaurants and sharing the sidebar stories about the chefs and/or owners.  Hope you've enjoyed the ride, almost as much as I have - since I get to sample first.:)



In this season of hope and thanksgiving - I wish you and your families a wonderful and safe holiday season!!!!
