On July 26, the team from Marigold Kitchen is headed to New York City to cook a dinner at the James Beard House–one of those nights that’s among the highlights of any chef’s career.

Okay, so I learned something last night. I learned that not everyone is quite as big a Star Wars nerd as I am. Or, really, that maybe no one is as big a Star Wars nerd as I am.
Or at least no one who showed up last night for our Foobooz Open Stove May the Fourth Spectacular. I mean, no one knew the name of the Wookie homeworld.
