"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
My dad, Gordon LaGuire and I were out picking wild blackberries this summer in Arcadia. The bushes were loaded, it's been a heck of a year for them. It brought back alot of memories about picking blackberries with Grandma and Grandpa LaGuire, it was one of their favorite activities and they loved to take us grand-kids. I ended up with a bee sting near my eye and Dad and I were both all scratched up from the thorns, but we both agreed that it was worth it, and this winter when we are enjoying the 8 pints of frozen blackberry jam, we'll agree all over again. Thanks Dad, for keeping the tradition going for another generation.
