For anyone who plans events, you’ll know that a million things can go wrong. But how about the magical project where everything seems to be going right? We don’t want to jinx ourselves, but consider this…

We had hoped to develop an idea that emerged from a #kbtribechat and make it work. What we got was a co-sponsor, American Standard Brands, who are working with us to ensure it’s a success.

We hoped to get people interested in participating. What we got was an “A” list of participants – fabulous designers and bloggers – interested in food and fun. And, to spice it up, we have an ultimate foodie writer in the mix!

We hoped to attract the attention of the management of the show itself. What we got was incredible interest, support, ideas and contributions from the Dwell on Design Communications Department.

We had hoped to get some mentions with #kbtribechat. What we got was a Special Edition #kbtribechat held in the booth during the event.

So now that we’ve exceeded all of our expectations… it’s time for the cooking teams to get to work, get down to the nitty gritty, formulate recipes, ingredient lists and cooking approaches on our live Culinarian units. Just make sure the other team doesn’t find out your secrets. 😉

Good luck to Brandon, Stacy, Rebecca, Nick, Lori and Emily! Can’t wait to see you in action!

*Lori isn’t really from the East, but she’s a Canadian so we took a little liberty!
