[I]t has been my pleasure to work with many Celebrity Chefs and by far, my experience with you was "top shelf." I appreciate so your engagement with the attendees, your respect for the catering special events industry, and your willingness to share your passion and personal stories with us all. . . . If I were to sum this all up in a recipe for an excellent featured speaker, it would read as follows:
* Take one part very charming, knowledgeable, and well-traveled man.
* Add an equal part of experiences from worldwide culinary journeys and network television.
* Sprinkle generously with a passion for life and a gift for sharing.
* Simmer gently and season with the perfect life and business partner.
* Serve to your audience, then sit back and enjoy while they are totally entertained and inspired.
