It Never Hurts to ask

01 Apr

Last year, I heard that the national tour of Outstanding in the Field was coming to the Twin Cities area.  I had no idea of how to get in touch with them directly, so I went to the website and sent off an email to anyone there that would listen.  I think I said something to the effect of, “I will cook, clean, or do anything I can to help out…”  The next thing I knew, Lenny Russo from Heartland was calling me and asking me to co-chef the event.   Needless to say, It never hurts to just ask.



This year they are coming back on July 31st, 2009 we will be at Riverbend Farms in Delano, MN

Tickets went on sale and there are a few left.  So if you want to join us this year please visit the website.

There you go….. any questions?
