With the first group of blown eggs we cooked breakfast for John DeFazio, a legendary teacher at the San Francisco Art Institute. John has been an influential presence to so many students and we wanted to thank him for his guidance, words of wisdom, and consistent encouragement. With mimosas in hand, we had a relaxing meal talking about all things art and life.
After a wonderful meal, Ruth was back to blowing eggs while Cathy and I worked in the other room. She then made cupcakes, olive bread, and sponge cake until people showed up for the viewing of The Night Porter. Before the film, we delved into Ruth's bounty so that we had plenty of fuel for the movie ahead.
