Preparing for this special exhibit opening has taken months but it was well worth the effort as 250 people filled the Museum foyer enjoying the displays and sampling the tasty appetizers and desserts. Leslie Christiansen was the director in the kitchen making sure that everything was presented perfectly on crystal plates with doilies. After all her training and now teaching at Classic Cooking Academy in Scottsdale, she has become an excellent chef, teacher and caterer. Kay Holcombe works at precision cutting the Chocolate Mint Bars while Leslie swirls icing on Great Pumpkin Cookies pg 162. These photos are just a few of the delightful delicacies served Wednesday, Oct 21 at the Arizona Historical Society Museum. Love the Cowboy Caviar pg 180 served in corn chips. Pam Ryan and Kay Holcombe enjoy a laugh during the hectic prep time.
There were speeches in the Steele Auditorium with Sandra Day O'Connor giving an inspirational talk. She is, indeed, a wonderful role model.
