An Apology to Chef Rick at Pamela’s in Newburgh
I think I may owe a very kind man an apology. Let me explain. It all started a few weeks ago when I heard that the folks from Pamela’s on the Hudson were opening up a soup restaurant called the Soup Shack, so I wrote an article about it. It was the idea of Pamela and her chef Rick Lacatina, a master soup maker. And Rick, who is a big fan of wpdh, was extremely touched by the article.
Fast forward a few weeks to our live broadcast last Friday. When I arrived, already feeling a little late, Chef Rick was actually there, and he had even brought some soups in coolers in his car. As appreciative as I was, I was caught off guard and totally unprepared to talk soup. I needed to get ready for the broadcast. We had to check the mics, make sure we were all ready for a 6 o”clock start. Preparation before the broadcast can be busier than the broadcast itself.
I tried in the nicest way I could to explain that the timing was all off and I couldn’t get involved in soups at that moment, but I would love to come in to the Soup Shack in the near future to check out some of the soups. Chef Rick was very gracious, and seemed to understand, but I could see the disappointment in his eyes.
And for that, Cef Rick, I apologize. The last thing I ever want to do is hurt somebody who is doing something kind. I was sincere when I said that I’d love to try the soups sometime, but I was unprepared at that moment. Thanks you so much for being so nice and for thinking of me.
