  1. This sounds amazing and I love any event at Astor Center! I am suppose to play basketball Saturday and want a great excuse to miss it!

    Even if I don’t win – good luck and happy #NYCWFF!

  2. Foie gras is the one of the highest forms of culinary pleasure. I’ve enjoyed it seared with Calvados and apples, wrapped in paper thin cucumber and served like sushi, served over toast points, and more. I have always delighted in its earthy flavor, its heavenly, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Sauternes on the table too? Now that’s a match made in heaven. Sigh,

  3. I have an absolute foie gras OBSESSION…I was I’ll with an adrenal tumor for awhile and before they figured out my treatment plan I thought I was dying…so needless to say, I set out to get my fill of foie GRAS before I was to kick the bucket! Lol! I took off to Calistoga and met a Chef at a local restaurant that was serving foie on his pan seared tuna and I asked if he would make me one all on it’s own as an entree. He did…and proceeded to tell me he would make me breakfast, lunch, n dinner foie GRAS every day I came in to that restaurant for the entire time I was staying in Calistoga all I had to do was come in. So I did for 2 weeks. Lol! Had the most amazing combinations of foie sweet n savory! He even named one after me “Jennivine’s Jewel” and I hoped it would get on his menu and see it in print one day! ;)) There’s more to this story it turns out, but. This is hopefully enough for me to win the tix. for now. :) I battled the tumor for 5 yrs. I am now 110% and haven’t had any foie since that last amazing experience with it! Lol! I would be coming from SF for this event…hope I get to do it . :)))
