Muscular Sclerosis Corks & Chords

Who doesn't like to promote the cookbook and the museum when you are surrounded by lovely people, a beautiful place, food from top chefs and great wines??? Bonnie Newhoff and I had a delightful Saturday evening, Sept 12 talking about a passion of ours, Tastes & Treasures cookbook, in the Mayo Clinic lobby. It was a fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis and 20% of the cookbook sales was donated to this worthwhile cause. We nibbled on tasty appetizers from Aiello's, Flemming's, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Arizona Cheesecake, Cake Cafe and more. The live music was a nice touch with a grand piano, a harpist, and a jazz band.

Bobbie Griego, owner of Cake Cafe, had a table and brought us red velvet cup cakes. Yummm. Worth the departure from the diet. Bobbie is an avid cookbook collector and commented that Tastes & Treasures is the best cookbook she has read. She bought 2 copies.
