My son and I have had a couple back and forth emails about my son's interest in Chef Jacques.
Most recently he said:
"First time I became aware of him was probably 15 years ago on a daytime talk show where he grabbed a bunch of veggies that were on the edge and a leftover chicken breast and made a quick soup. That’s also when I leaned about using the leaves on celery.
His wife of 54 or so years eat together every night with a bottle of wine or two."
The nightly "dinner with a bottle of wine or two" just set me off.
Here is an email that became a blog post:
I was honest a few years back - or made a best estimate at describing my daily alcohol intake for my PCP at the time, and said that I drink a bottle of wine a day.
