    Loved her and love that you posted that here.

    As Carl Sagan once said, to make an apple pie truly from scratch, you must first invent the universe. And sometimes I just don't have the time and energy to invent the universe. So I figure it's okay to buy some stuff.

    Sommelier Bob Bansberg, who taught wine classes at Kendall College, has died. His classes were often on Saturday morning, so he would stroll over to my food history meetings afterwards.

    Always intended to do a program together on Presidential wines, but getting schedules synced was an endless problem.

    What a wonderful person to exchange thoughts on food and restaurant culture, because he was so down to Earth. Just learned from reading some people's reactions, he grew up in LaSalle county.

    He was also the sommelier at Ambria during its heyday.
