Report on the Celebrity Chef Weekend of June 27 to 29, 2008

Nearly 100 people attended the third annual celebrity chef weekend.  They ate and they ate as expert chefs from around the country dished out humor, education, and their most cherished dishes.  The food was all low-fat vegan. How very interesting and friendly the people are who attend our conferences, and how much they can eat without gaining an ounce of weight always surprise us.

Look in this monthís newsletter recipe section and the months that follow for recipe contributions from each of our celebrity chefs.
