Presents for the Chef

The power of networking and making friends is invaluable, no matter what you do, or what your line of work.  You meet so many wonderful people when you open your doors and your heart.  So many good and unexpected things come your way when you are responsive to all the positives that are out there, just waiting to be discovered.  When I first started my blog, “A Jeanne in the Kitchen”, I had no idea what I was doing, let alone any expectations for what the future might hold.  I still don’t really, but in just a few short months, I have been graciously welcomed into the world of blogging, and many new doors and new possibilities have opened up and presented themselves to me; things I never knew I wanted, but now value and appreciate.  I thought my culinary career had ended a long time ago, but now, it seems like it is once again flourishing.  I have “met” so many interesting and wonderful people, some of whom I feel a real connection to, and even call friends.  One such person I have connected with, is David Richman, Founder and CEO of Cheforward, LLC, who saw my blog and has been following me.  He has taken me under his wing, so to speak and is now helping me grow.  Chef Richman’s company Cheforward, LLC sells beautiful serving ware to the restaurant and catering industries.  Today, I was very pleasantly surprised with not one, but two packages filled with some of his beautiful pieces.  They are meant to be used for serving, and believe me, they will be used for just that, but they are also beautiful pieces of art as well.  This wonderful surprise came just in time for me to use at my annual Holiday party that will be coming up in just a couple of weeks.  Here are the gorgeous pieces that were waiting for me when I came home from work this afternoon.

Aren’t all these pieces just gorgeous?  And these are just a few of the beautiful items that can be found at Cheforward, LLC.  Go on their website cheforward.com to see more of what they have to offer.  Thank you so much, Dave Richman.  This was a very kind and generous gift.  All of these pieces will be well used and well loved every time they are used.  They will make their grand debut at my annual Holiday party, in two weeks.  Now I have to think of some really good foods to serve on these that will do them the justice they so deserve.

  1. They certainly do look good, it’s great to know that the chef blogging community is so nice and welcoming. I’m just setting up my blog now after 10 years as a chef and 4 years as head chef 😊 looking forward to seeing what comes next.
