Ho Ho Ho Hipcooks,

Happy December!  I bring you some good tidings:

Hipcooks Annual Knife-Throwing Party and Holiday Sale, Sunday Dec. 10 from 1 - whenever!

Got your attention?  Good!  Now, to clarify:
Free Knife-sharpening Yep!  Bring in ANY tired, dull knives you got - Wusthof will be here to put the cutting adge back on 'em.  Wheee!  1pm until at least 4pm

Free Knifeskills Workshop
will happen from 1pm until at least 4.  All the Hipcooks teachers will be here to help show you how to use, hone, store your lovely newly sharp blades.  Or practice with ours!

Holiday Sale  (from 1pm until at least 4) Well, wouldn't you know it?  I'll have Wusthof knives here for sale, including the all-new and ever-so-exciting Hipcooks Special Edition Knives from Wusthof.  Oh, I am so tickled.  Come see - you will be too!  Or I will tickle you myself.  ( And Big, big, big yummy thanks to Cecil at for the beautiful graphic work that make the box-set box look so schwank.  Hats off!)

Knives as stocking stuffers, all around! OK, I will also have The Salt, Cuttingboards, Vanilla Paste, Citrus Presses, Sexy Aprons and all the rest.
Also in my studio will be Retimade Glass Jewelry, Rebe Cothing and Random Nicole's beautiful fashions.  Fun!  The other studios in my block are having open houses, so think of it as a Mini-Art Walk.  Check it!

Screw the sale, let's have a party!  Yes, at some indeterminate hour - I should think around 5 pm or so, we'll clear the dancefloor, serve up some yummy drinks and have an end-of-the-year celebration.  Marat, wanna bring your records again?  : )
I invite all of you, and if you wish to bring anything to share, that would be most fun and welcome.

Cup of good Cheer
8 jumbo eggs
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
freshly grated nutmeg
hot water

For each drink:
1 oz. Rum
1 oz. Cognac

Separate egg whites and yolks. In a large mixer, beat yolks until they're thick and transfer to another bowl. Clean the mixer and add the egg whites, beat until stiff. Add powdered sugar and fold in yolks. Mix until batter is thick, but light. In a pre-heated mug, add one heaping ladle of batter. Add rum and brandy. Top with hot water and dust with freshly grated nutmeg. Serve with a spoon.  It is totally delish.  Trust me, I know.

Eat Well, Be well.  Happy Holidays.  And huge thanks to all of you for such a fantastic 2005.
