From Rockview to Rockridge
What a curious coincidence. My former roommate and dear friend Jim Pire (the Dude) emailed this picture to me today of an event that took place at least 12 years ago in the house we shared in the Berkeley, California hills (Rockridge district).
The man with the tongs is Chris, one of my dearest friends in the world and former business partner and co-founder of the publishing company we founded in America: Compass American Guides (now wholly owned by Random House). Nest to him is his lovely wife Ben.
We ate many lobsters and dungeness crabs in that kitchen and share some great memories.
