Food and Wine Make Great New Friends and FunniBonz Fans

At the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival this weekend, we met up with lots of old friends and managed to make some wonderful new fans as well.

Jim was interviewed by Cable Channel 12 for NJN News. The reporter tasted and loved the sauce.
(If anyone has a digital version of this footage, or even knows the name of the reporter, please let me know. I can't find it anywhere! Thanks!)

We were so honored that Chef Georges Perrier stopped by, tried the sauce and actually went home with a few jars! He really made our day!

We were lucky enough to catch Chef Ingrid Hoffmann (one of Lauryn's FAVORITE Food Network chefs) at a calm moment and she was SO gracious. She talked with us, took pictures and even tasted the sauce. We hope to meet up with her again at the Philly Show in October.

We met up with Chef Darryl Harmon, Executive Chef of The Water Works Restaurant and Lounge in Philadelphia. His staff was sampling the most delicious heirloom tomato gazpacho. If that was just a sample, we can't wait to get to the restaurant and try out something from the full menu.

We also met up wth Chef Diane Henderiks who was sampling and selling her fat-free, sugar-free, salt-free flavorings on delicious cubes of Cabot's cheese. Not only is she an awesome chef, she is a registered dietician so she can help you eat your way to good health.

Jim befriended Chef Rocky Fino, author of the book Will Cook For Sex: A Guy's Guide to Cooking. He was signing autographs and selling copies of his conversation-staring cookbook.

We also made quite a few new friends at the FunniBonz table:

Thank you so much to all of you that stopped by and gave us your love, support, stories, (snacks!) and humor. Every smile, every compliment, every purchase means the world to us! Keep up with us on the blog, follow us on Twitter and befriend us on Facebook. We couldn't do it without you and we are honored to have met you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The FunniBonz Family!
