    I’m excited to see Tom Colicchio! I’ve been to his restaurant in Vegas, and I think he has the most natural cooking style. He seems personable as well. Looking forward to getting his new book as well! (BTW, I tried to subscribe and I’m still waiting on the email confirmation….)

    Would love to see Tom Colicchio! Love his philosophy on cooking fresh, in-season ingredients, and just using the simplest of techniques to really bring out natural flavor. Huge fan!

    Seeing Tom and Gail together would be a dream come true! I doubt I’ll ever be fancy enough to go to the Aspen Food and Wine festival so this may be my only chance!
