And the award goes to...

While the movie Capote was being filmed in Winnipeg, I had the opportunity to provide organic meals in partnership with Julie Fine and her Bright Side Catering company for Academy Award winner, Philip Seymour Hoffman. I guess that I was his personal chef but personal would imply that I had met him. From what I understand in a letter from him, he enjoyed his meals.

This is some of what I prepared for Philip Seymour Hoffman while he was here for 6 weeks.

Any word on if Mr. Hoffman fainted after having the Imam Baldi? He should have. Karen, tried the's amazing. I added shredded arabic cheese with black seed (about 1/2 a cup) or to taste, and found the textural combination heavenly.
