(Hey, what is this Skål Project anyway?)
Good things come in threes… For your skål viewing pleasure, here are some sets of three skåls:
Three photos of two brothers:
Matt and Ted Lee. Southern food experts, cookbook authors, magazine and newspaper writers. Lovers of boiled peanuts. Rarely seen apart. Which is Matt and which is Ted?
Matt Lee. This one is Matt.
Ted Lee. This one's Ted.
Three old-school 4 star French chefs:
Andre Soltner. 4 star chef. The Amazin Alsatian. Formerly of Lutece --the greatest restaurant in the US for decades. FCI Dean of Classic Studies. Took a vacation never.
Alain Sailhac. 4 star chef. Formerly of Le Cynge and Le Cirque. Dean Emeritus at the FCI. As real as it gets.
Christian Delouvrier. 4 star chef, formerly of Lespinasse. Real French dude.
Two Bloggers and a Rock and Roll Manager makes three:
Shoshana Sakolsky. Foodie Femme blogger. Loves cocktails and science. What's not to like?
Tam Ngo. Writes for Serious Eats (is also a lawyer). Lover of architecture, design and food. A mean photographer.
Angus Vail. Manager for Kiss. Formerly Managed INXS. Kiwi. Food Lover.
Shoshana Sakolsky, Angus Vail, Tam Ngo
And three ballet dancers!
Allegra Kent. Badass ballet dancer, muse of Balanchine, author of "Once a Dancer."
Jacques D'Amboise, American ballet dancer and choreographer. Balanchine thought he was pretty cool and so do we.
Nina Brickman, ballet dancer, writer, mother of Sophie.
Finally, we’d like to introduce you to three more members of our Cooking Issues family:
Raina Bien, FCI Marketing, one of the founders of Cooking Issues, tortured by Dave on an almost daily basis
Travis Huggett, original Skål Project Photography Consultant & Skål Party Photographer, both Cooking Issues family and actual family - he's Dave's brother-in-law
James Carpenter. The man behind the Cooking Issues cartoons. Dave's cousin. Lover of learning and vegetables.
