Palmetto Bluff

September 24, 2008

Hi everyone-

I’m still out here in NYC shooting some fantastic new episodes of ‘Tyler’s Ultimate’ and getting ready to head out on a new book tour for ‘Stirring the Pot’ and ‘Dinner at My Place.’  Stay tuned for more details as they become available.

And if you haven’t already, be sure to check out http://www.musictoyourmouth2008.com to make sure you get your tickets for this year’s Lowcountry Celebration at Palmetto Bluff.  Events are selling out fast and there are just a few spots available.

I hope to see you all out on the road!

Cheers,

Tyler

Hittin’ the road…

September 12, 2008

Hi everyone-

The Fall travel season has started and like I said, I hope to see some of you out on the road.

This morning, I’m heading to my hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, to spend a couple of days with my family and take part in a great festival called Euphoria.  If you are in the area, come on by Saturday and Sunday.

Then, I’m off to NY to shoot some great new episodes of Tyler’s Ultimate.  I can’t wait to get back on set.  Once we get into the groove, the creative energy is really great.  My producer, Mark Dissin, and I have been making television for a long time and together with my Culinary Director, Anthony, we have a really good flow on set.  A lot of my best recipes are born on Ultimate and its always a great creative journey that is extra special as I get to share it all with you in the finished product.

My last hurrah of summer came last weekend as the family headed to Half Moon Bay, CA, to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday.  I think Larry “Frank” Moss turned about 39 this year so we had to do something special.  It was a nice, relaxing weekend in one of the most beautiful spots in Northern California.  But, despite all the breathtaking ocean views, I think Hayden’s favorite part of the trip was eating grandpa’s cake.

Cheers,

Tyler

Gearing up for Fall…

September 3, 2008

Hi everyone-

Well, the summer is over and the craziest part is that around here in the Bay Area, September and October seem to have the best weather.  So, I’ll be soaking up some sun while its still here but soon enough I know I’ll be itching to get my snowboard out of the garage.

Needless to say, its been pretty busy around the house since Tolan and Dorothy came home from the hospital and we’ve just been taking some time to introduce Dorothy to everybody and spend some good quality family time around the house.  Hayden has really taken to her and it is really amazing to watch them together.

But, we did get away for a couple of days when the entire family headed up to Calistoga for group vacation.  Tolan’s brother arranged for a big house for us all to chill out, swim and play with the kids and it was truly the most relaxing thing I’ve done in a long time.  No cell phones, no meetings, just hangin’ with the gang.  I couldn’t have asked for a better vacation.  Take a peek at this picture of Hayden and I in the pool…I love it.

Vacation is over and its time to get back to work and I hope to be seeing some of you soon.  While I’m on my way to New York to shoot some new episodes of Tyler’s Ultimate, I’m going to stop through my hometown of Greenville, SC, to take part in an amazing food festival called Euphoria on September 13 and 14.  There’s a great line up of chefs and the proceeds support some amazing local charities.  If you are in the area, come on down to Greenville and say hello.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I fill you in on a bunch of dates for my upcoming book tour to support the release of my two new books, Stirring the Pot and Dinner At My Place.  Its going to be a busy Fall season and I look forward to seeing a lot of you along the way.

Cheers,

Tyler
