Something in Common

My memories of The Common Threads World Festival include; walking from table to table with my partner in crime Gina Dicello, flirting with cute chefs and trying to get Chef Ryan Poli to notice me.

The 2011 event- hosted by Chef Art Smith- would be different.

This year, Gina couldn’t attend so my roll dog was my friend Luis Arroyave. Luis is the entertainment reporter for the Chicago Tribune and while he thinks we’re total opposites- I think we have a ton in common.

While Luis ate his way thru the amazing spread from some of the Nation’s best chefs’, I chatted away and flirted with Chef Poli…again.

We both walked out with a prize; Luis’s was a Wonka-sized candy bar he picked up from some stunning blondes and mine? The chef who finally noticed me.
