it was so awesome! she was funny and answered our questions thoughtfully and made the whole thing super laid back. i can’t get over how genius this was as a marketing strategy (pre-order 10 copies of her book, get a 30-minute skype session with her) - not only for bloom, but also because we all left as kelle hampton fangirls and will definitely look out for her next project (which, she told us, is going to be another book!).
we always try to theme our menus…this one was a bit hard, but we made dishes with something “extra” in honor of nella’s extra chromosome…something that made the food even more awesome. so, pigs in a blanket…with bacon. deviled eggs…with guacamole. queso…with sausage. grilled cheese sandwiches…with buffalo chicken. plus champagne in plastic glasses, a la nella’s birth night (and one of my favorite photos from the book). it was a great success and a perfect book for a great discussion.
