Back in March of 2007, I was lucky enough to meet my culinary hero, Giada De Laurentiis, at a charity event in Chicago.
She was sweet, humble and passionate for her work...not to mention, ultra beautiful and teeny tiny!
Giada, Tyler...need a new kitchen designer? :)
Here is a fun shot of Tyler Florence from Food Network, and I at the same charity event..he actually was running the live, fun and crazy auction!
The love I have of designing, cooking, and just being in the kitchen with family & friends...always leads to creative inspiration.
