James Andrews, 2/10/2010 - 1:59am "I am the owner of both Ciao & Calistoga Bar & Grill.
Hope Egan did indeed contribute greatly to the menu development at Calistoga. My chefs Fernando Flores, Jeff Love & my wife & partner Kathleen Kennedy also contributed their input & expertise toward developing the recipes & the menu. I have a wonderful team of professionals that all share credit for our success. As owner of the business NOTHING makes it on my menu without my testing, input, revision and approval. This is true of the recipes Hope provided as well as my own recipes and Fernando Flores' recipes.
To suggest that I am taking credit for for someone else's work or inspiration is ridiculous. Hope is a part of my team & I value her work tremendously. It is, in the end, my restaurant, my recipes, my menu, my food. & my reputation. That means I am responsible for everything that we serve..good or bad.
It also means that I am willing to sign my name to my response, as opposed to taking potshots anonymously.
