Doesn't this make your mouth water:

"Braise with Daniel Boulud hosted by Sissy Biggers

New York, NY
Saturday, November 11, 2006 12 2:30pm
$250 per person

Learn the secrets behind Daniel Boulud's world renowned culinary magic as he shares braising techniques at a private luncheon at his famed New York City restaurant, Daniel. Feast on a sumptuous sit-down lunch with recipes prepared from Boulud's new cookbook, Braise. While you dine, Lifestyle Television Personality Sissy Biggers will engage Daniel in a lively conversation about Braise and his exceptional cooking experiences overall. Each attendee will receive an autographed copy of the book."


A lively conversation with Sissy is worth the entrance fee alone, surely.

What, you haven't always wanted to have lunch with a Lifestyle Television Personality?

I'd like to ask her why she isn't called Biggie Sissers. Then she could be an MC.

As Hollywood said elsewhere, "Luxury!"
Spend $250 to watch Boulud boil a brisket whilst badinaging with whom? Sissy Biggers? For Christ's sake!
Cambridge University Professor of Electrical Engineering, Sir Charles Oatley, in October, 1948, along with his student Dennis McMullan, began the research that led to the production of the first scanning electron microscope in 1965.

I thought you'd want to know.

Right. That should be worth at least an Alton Brown and a quick pan sauce.

Is this a thread to list all things we won't be doing or just those related to food?

If it's the former... a few things I won't be doing:

Joining the army
Turning vegan
Jumping from a plane
Participating in reality TV
Watching reality TV
100 pushups
Having gay sex
Cosmetic surgery
Finding religion
Hopping on the wagon
Growing cilantro
Getting into a knife fight
Dance class

I dropped it in the food forum, because I keep receiving (or seeing) invitations to the most unappealing food events.

Have you gotten the one for the tripartite tasting at Cru, Per Se, and Daniel at a mere $17,500 a head? That one gave me pause I can tell you.

For a mere $500 more, you can go with a friend and split the pours. :blink:

curb your god

If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities. (Voltaire)


One is often told that it is very wrong to attack religion because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it. (Bertrand Russell)

Believing there is no god gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O, and all things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have. (Penn Jillette)
