This morning, chef Xuan Ngo and I were invited to the City of Placentia – State of the City Address by new mayor Joseph Aguirre at the Alta Vista Country Club in Placentia. One would ask why were we invited to the State of the City address by the Mayor? What the heck?
Eventhough our commercial kitchen and business license is in the city of Fullerton, both Chef Xuan and I live in the city of Placentia. Actually, we caught the Mayor and city officials’ attention from our participation in the LA Chocolate Salon in 10/09. Apparently one of the attendees brought it up to the Mayor that there are Artisan Chocolatiers in his city !!!
Below is a picture of Chef Xuan and I with Mayor Joseph Aguirre.
