    As the host of the dinner mentioned here, I wanted to thank Randy for what was a perfect evening. His creativity in the food department is exciting to watch (and eat!) and the explanations of the food and background were an added benefit. It was a great evening, highly recommended and we are looking forward to having Randy back for another dinner.
