    Looking forward to my third SVWC–congratulations to Robin Eidson and Robin Winston for an excellent effort. As writer, editor and publisher, with my gorgeous new coffee-table-kitchen ready book, THE ART LOVERS’ COOKBOOK, hot off the press, I am looking forward to learning more this year from the stunning array of thought-provoking writers–although this year there is not a cookbook author….maybe next year when the Sun Valley edition of The Art Lovers’ Cookbook is ready!
