    Greyhounds, good food and good wine are some of my favorite things! I’d be very happy to win and my wife would be glad to be taken somewhere other than the fair.

      Chef Ward has had a great influence in my cooking since I was 17 and got his book. Ten years later it sure would be fun to enjoy his food and this menu looks great.

  4. Michelle, you win! I will be sending you an email shortly.
