Last Tuesday morning was the first of our monthly breakfast meetings at The BEDFORD POST and I'm pleased to say we had a terrific turnout.
Co-leaders Jan Maltby, Susan Rubin and Michelle Kim were there, along with Catherine Clare, a great local supporter, Margaret Sapir from WAVE HILL BREADS, Cynthia Brennan from TABLE, Neil Alexander, a local attorney and advocate and Jon Zeltsman with COMMUNITY MARKETS.
Everyone was full of ideas. As always, we encourage people to be as enthusiastic about following up on their ideas as they are about suggesting them.
Everyone at the table dined on Crip Farm Fresh Egg with wild mushroom grits and guancial. It was delicious. A few of the early birds that were sneaking off to yoga in the studio upstairs, enjoyed the homestyle baked goods that are offered. Over the next few months, we hope to try everything this cozy farmhouse has to offer.
Following the breakfast a few of us were lucky enough to have Brian Lewis, Bedford Posts' chef, give us a tour of the kitchen, private dining room and formal dining room. The space is lovely, warm and inviting. Brian, also, gave us a sneak peek into his Sunday night cooking classes. Here, everyone gets to beome a chef and prepare a 4-course dinner in the main kitchen before sitting to wine and dine family style. Hopefully, Jan will have the opportunity to attend in the next few weeks and report back on the experience.
Mark your calendars for Feb. 10, 2009 at 9:30 for the next breakfast. We will meet the second Tuesday of each month at the BEDFORD POST, 954 Old Post Road (RT. 121), Bedford Hills, 914-234-7800.
We, also, wanted to let everyone know that Maryanne Hedrick is stepping down as co-leader and Susan Rubin has agreed to assume her role.
Next BIG EVENT: Bedford Envirnmental Summit on Jan. 31st.
