My sous chef Diana was stung in the foot by a stingray while surfing the other week. The worst pain she ever felt, she said, and she's tougher than me. Already back in the kitchen, too. Heal quickly, D.
A little further afield, I just found out that Chef Grant Achatz from Alinea Restaurant in the Chicago area, has been diagnosed with cancer. I haven't been there yet, but it's fascinating food, with a non-traditional and technological emphasis. I wish him a quick and complete recovery.
