Sara Moulton was in today to celebrate her new book. Sara and I go way back... a long time ago me met when I applied for a job at La Tulipe restaurant in Greenwich Village. I knocked at the steel gate of the restaurant and this bubbly blond answered the door. She was so amused by my friendly handshake when we first met that fateful day on the steps of La Tulipe and became fast friends ever since. We worked together there as "mighty mights" her husband Bill would call us. Later, Sara brought me in to GMA, when she was the chef, to use my baking skills, for the first time, to make a Reine de Saba for Julia Child when she was the food correspondent on GMA. Sonia Selby Wright was the food segment producer at that time. After that, I would come in from time to time when Sara needed extra help for certain segments, and when she was on maternity leave I filled in for her. When she went to the food network she recommended I replace her as the Chef at GMA. By that time Margo became the food segment producer and we have all worked together ever since. The rest is history.
Steve, our friendly photographer taking this shot of the Salmon I made for Sara's demo for the GMA recipe website. I took these shots of Steve taking the salmon and then I shot the salmon I made for this blog!
