Very Happy Hurray! I just recieved my copy of Chocolate & Zucchini today that Justin aka np36 sent me from the booksigning in Boston. I can honestly state with a great deal of certaintity that this is the only copy in Iraq. It was most definitely the bright spot in my day. I just want to thank Clotilde for the inscription and Justin for doing this for me. I sent Justin a picture of me with the book. If he wants he can post it on his website so anyone can see the happy smile on my face.

Bainst,

... that's the good news, just wait until your mates find out and they'll 'promote' you to chef!! Keep it hid and read in private or you'll be cooking for everyone!! Tho' that might be a good way to experiment...!! Wink

Congrats, Bainst. I was wondering how the story ended. I hope you enjoy as much as I do. And Justin, you certainly have some good karma coming your way! What is your web site? would love to see the photo of C&Z in iraq!

Wow, I think the shipping to Iraq is faster than the shipping to Alaska! I just got my copy yesterday as well, so maybe we were co-reading.

Enjoy and take care!

Justin's photos of the Chez Henri dinner are at

http://www.justinide.com/051607cz/

The last photo is of Clotilde signing bainst's book. Maybe Justin will add one more photo - of bainst with the signed book in Iraq! That would really complete the photo gallery.

Don't we live in a wonderful amazing world? And I'm sure this is just one of many C&Z stories.
