I’m returning to Palm Desert, California on March 22 and 23 for the annual Food & Wine Festival Palm Desert. The event is uniquely educational and benefits the Friends of the James Beard Foundation, The Culinary Institute of America’s Endowed Scholarship Fund, and Les Dames d’Escoffier Scholarships. On Friday the 22nd, for the the James Beard Foundation Award Winning Chefs Gourmet luncheon, I will be making Cannoli Stuffed Strawberries. On Saturday the 23rd at 12:45 pm, I will be demonstrating two meals from one prep featuring duck, first Bistro Duck Breasts, and then a second entree in which I turn some of the cooked duck breasts into Peking Duck Wraps. For more information or to purchase tickets go to Palm Desert Food and Wine.
