  1. Thanks so much for sharing the recipes, particularly for those of us who could not attend this presentation. It is also a nice way to be sure that the recipes get in a more secure “storage” place. They sound great, and we’re looking forward to trying them!

  2. Cannot wait to make these potatoes. They sound delicious. I appreciate receiving the recipes and look forward hopefully to more in the future.
    Our family have been long-time admirers of Rich Mead’s culinary talents and have always enjoyed dining in his restaurants. The Farmhouse has become a special place for us, as was The Sage.
    Thank you so much!

  3. Most grateful for the messages and sincerely hope that Chef Mead has settled down in his new location. We too thoroughly enjoyed
    Sage etc. and very much look forward to visiting with you when we return for our yearly sojourn in the U.S. from Australia
    Thank you sincerely for all the very happy dining occasions over the years.
