WOW WOW WOW!! We have such a treat in store for STARDUST, this Sunday’s Solstice event in NYC — Sunday, December 20th at 6pm at Judson Memorial Church — for the food offering, I had one thing in mind when we set the theme. A few years ago a dear old friend of mine sent Bobby and me a beautiful package of truffles in the mail. It was holiday time and, when we opened the box, we both gasped. They were glittery! What? GLITTER TRUFFLES!! Heavenly. And, the taste surpassed their beauty. I thought, you know what would be the perfect thing for STARDUST, those incredible truffles that Cassie sent us a few years ago. Here’s the thing: Cassie lives in New Mexico…what the hell, I emailed her. She was delighted to be asked and, guess what? She made them and shipped them to us. And, we’re going to serve her glitter truffles as the food offering. And I AM SO HAPPY AND EXCITED! People really are magic. And, Cassie Meaux McDuffie is a perfect example. SO much love.
Here’s the bio:
Cassandra Meaux (pronounced Mo) McDuffie
Cajun-born, brown-eyed girl observes and experiences cooking and food as a celebration of life in all of its funky and glorious forms……even, and especially, in the low rice/high sugar cane fields of southern louisiana.
She leaves home early (and often) to explore. She discovers cooking and food as an art form and yet it’s still a funky, glorious celebration! She mustn’t and can’t resist.
She cooks. She celebrates. She can’t help it.
