                2. I'd like to go on a culinary journey with Ripert. Or really any kind of journey. Or even a short trip, if you catch my drift.

                      Its only fair. I suppose your "visions" of Ripert are no different from my "visions" of Padma.

                      1. re: Phaedrus

                        Phaedrus, Padma is yours, but leave Gail alone. I ran across an Eric Ripert series of short cooking videos last night. Go to Yahoo Eric Ripert Metacafe.

                      2. re: LindaWhit

                        haha speak for yourself! I <3 Chef Ripert because the food at his restaurant blew my mind! ;)

                    2. Undoubtedly everyone here found this website way before me, but just in case:
                      And his toaster oven recipes (no kidding) are fantastic. Some day at Le Bernardin ---- we can dream, can't we?
