Avec Eric à vos loisirs!

How can you not like Eric Ripert? First off, it is fun to say his name, especially if you use your over the top French accent: "Ereek Reepairrrrrrrrrr". And apparently he is not only an absurdly gifted chef at his 4-star NYC restaurant Le Bernardin, but he is also reputed to be an incredibly nice, not full-of-himself person, which totally comes across in this this promo video for his "Avec Eric" food series that starts Thursday on OPB TV here in Portland....

Now, if you are like, oh, I don't know, 90% of the viewing audience who would like to watch the show but have that pesky job to go to so can't catch it's 12:30pm start time, and your boss just doesn't get why this is SO important to you that you need to take a long lunch break, then technology will come to your aid. All you have to do is click this link to get to the Avec Eric website and you can watch the 30 minute episodes online. Even at work if you're really sneaky! I for one have already started in (adding to the benefits of being my own boss as I am watching them at VINO while I "work"), and love how accessible and fun this show is. As if you needed another avenue to whet your appetite!!

Are you hiring by any chance. I would be happy to man the Webber as well as help sample the wines.
