Last night in an effort to wrestle me from my I-hate-renovation-and-all-things-that-go-along-with-them blues, Tom took me over to the Paramount Theater to see the Vermont Top Chefs Live show. I know that he was desperate and truly loves me, because cooking shows (even live ones) are not on the top of his list. Yet, we went.

The show, hosted by Chef Stanti from the Victorian Inn here in Wallingford featured chefs from South Station, The Red Clover Inn and The Huntington House. The evening was complete with tastings of all sorts of goodies ahead of time and goodies bags and give aways.
