Last night Zach, Nicole, Albert, Jen, and I slaved away and delighted 80 lucky guests with our Pan-Asian Five Course Chocolate Tasting Dinner. Actually, the delight was enjoyed by all; it was a pleasure on both sides of the counter. My delight is largely due to the fact that these guys helping me continue to be on-point in making these special events more special with each new engagement.
