June has been an exciting month for Mustard Girl. It was a great honor to be asked to be an exhibitor at Food & Wine magazine's annual Aspen Classic and be a part of an event that draws America's leading culinary artisans and chefs. We served up some delicious Alpine Sausages, Organic Potato Pops, Aged Wisconsin White Cheddar Cheese, and Bavarian Pretzels to accompany our mustards. It was a huge success and we even got a write up in The Aspen Times! I couldn't have done it without my sweet Mustard Girls, Phoebe Macmillan, Carrie Connor, and Lilly Bickers, not to mention the wonderful Caribou Club, who helped me cater. I'd also like to thank Wesley, darling owner of www.bundlescolorado.com, who helped me do the intricate design work of our chalkboard. Grateful to be spreading the sunshine in such a beautiful town with incredible inspirations all around ! We look forward to returning!
Earlier this month I threw the first opening pitch for the Madison Mallards, (over the plate thank goodness!). I also was honored to participate in a very successful Culinary Women of Wisconsin event fundraiser for the Madison Public Library, with Gourmet editor and author Ruth Reichl, who was promoting her delightfully savory new book, Delicious.
We want to also give a big shout out to the Chicago Blackhawks for bringing Lord Stanley back to Chicago and becoming the NHL Stanley Cup Champions for 2015!! We are sending buckets of sunshine to the heroic players and of all the amazing fans who make this team so great! Tampa Bay gave a good fight, and were hard to beat—all incredible athletes. We look forward to seeing them on the ice next season again!
