Jill and Judd came for a culinary experience last week and this is the response from them.

Recipe Testing for a Cookbook

by DJ on March 31, 2017

We were contracted to test and standardize recipes for an upcoming cookbook by the person putting it together.  We began the project with our first photo shoot on February 15th.  A longtime friend from the Danville days joined us for his love of cooking and eye to presentation.  It has been fun working with Brian and he has been sharing his toys while we are working on this project.  So he said I was going to miss his toys when he takes them home.  I said he needs to come visit more often to use his toys!!!  Afterall, possession is 9/10 of the law, isn’t it?  And they look really cool on my pastry table.
