I'm positively HUMBLED by the extraordinary response we've seen on this year's Menu For Hope Campaign.
So, what am I coveting?
Well, I'm definitely enamored of UW48, Hangar One's donation. Alas, it would be unfair of me to put in for that prize since it's one of my own. (But, you know, as long as you're asking? Cardamom & Rosewater. Yea, baby.)
EU32 would be a killer way for my friend L and I to make the most of our time in Paris this spring; a custom itinerary and reservation service? Bring it on.
'Course I'm also seriously loving the UC10 -- a stage at Alinea? Are you kidding? Grant Achatz is my own personal molecular gastronomy God. I'd be honored to play the role of gopher for a day.
But then, in the wine category I would be thrilled to win dinner with Eric Asimov (WB01) or Lenn's Long Island Wine Lovers Getaway (WB19). And I can tell you from first-hand experience that anyone winning WB02 (Alder's Sommelier for a Night Service) will be very pleased indeed -- he's patient, expressive and fun to drink with.
So many amazing prizes to choose from! And while I wish you guys all the best luck, I still hope I win one of my covets!
