Okay, don’t worry, I’m not crazy…I know its not Christmas. But, I did get a really nice surprise today at The Shop.
For the past three days, I’ve been shooting some episodes of a great Food Network series called ‘Dear Food Network.’ And, as often happens in the television business, we shoot some stuff in advance, like holiday specials. Well, right in the middle of my holiday segment, in walks the one and only Chuck Williams, founder of Williams-Sonoma, a true pioneer and a hugely inspirational man.
Many years ago, Chuck followed his dream to bring the best European culinary equipment and foods to America. And, as history will show, he truly did help us all fall in love with our kitchens. He’s built an empire and has set the standard for the kitchen retail business across the country.
I am so honored that Chuck took the time to stop by, say hello and see what is going on at my shop. I hope the holiday decorations didn’t throw him off! Thanks, Chuck.
