NY Times Article – 7/2001


Many years ago (1995?) I wholesaled to Dean and DeLuca in NYC. There, Ms. Allegra McEvedy bought some of my work. She was a writer and foodie in Great Britian (see her article lower down this page).
She recommended my work to Bee Wilson, who purchased directly from me.
Then I got an e-mail from Bee’s publicist with below. Click it to open. This little thing below sent me so many inquiries from really good people all around the world, and has led to a lot of new clients. Thank you Bee!
By the way, “Considering the Fork: A History of How We Cook and Eat is a gem of a book. A great gift for your favorite foodie in the family! Sold on Amazon.
