On a side note, I've been working with Chefs for the Marcellus on the campaign to fight hydrofracking our food and water upstate. We've got a great event coming up on Thursday July 26 with phenomenal chefs, an amazing walk around tasting, etc. The early bird discount ends on Monday July 16 - and we'd love your support now! Governor Cuomo needs to know where we stand on this critical issue.
Thanks in advance,
