Hippy Gourmet Newsletter - May'05
Although the Hippy Gourmet has some incredible
shows still to come from our Hawaiian adventure in Kauai and Oahu,
we’re gearing up for what’s promising to be an awe-inspiring
Hippy Gourmet Plans for mid-May and June
Kicking off a whirlwind tour of Italy,
we'll be flying from our Hippy headquarters in San Francisco directly to Frankfurt, Germany on Lufthansa!
Our tour will begin with a feature on Lufthansa, their magnificent in-flight services and culinary experiences,
as well as their top-notch wine list! We'll also be doing a feature on Lufthansa's star Chefs who design all
of the menus for their worldwide offerings.
After we spend a little time visiting with Lufthansa in Germany,
we'll be heading to Florence, Italy where we're so happy to be hooking
up with our Italian Television partners Phoenix Media! Luca Centoni
and Phoenix Media were our gracious hosts last year when we traveled
for seven amazing days around Tuscany (Check out Episodes 72-82),
going from the mountains to the sea and eating pretty much everything
in our path!
This summer we're so pumped to be touring around Pisa, Venice, Tuscany, Sardinia
and more and all in an amazing 'Hippie-style' RV called an 'Exsis' by Hymer of Germany!
Of course we'll be camping and showing all our fans some of the most relaxed and laid-back
camping facilities in Europe, but we'll also be hosted by several breathtaking hotel-resorts
and we'll be featuring the top chefs in each area!
James Ehrlich returns to the Apple Stage!
This July, after our return from Europe, James Ehrlich will again
take the stage at several Apple stores around the country. He'll
be in Los Angeles at the Apple
store at the 3rd street promenade in Santa Monica - and also
returning to the Apple store in San Francisco later this summer,
(amongst other Apple appearances coming soon). You should really
check this presentation out, because James not only shows how
the entire Hippy Gourmet TV Show is produced on an Apple Macintosh
Computer running Final Cut Pro software- but he also shares from
the heart how incredible it is to film something and then bring
it all to life for millions of viewers around the world to participate
with. So keep checking our site and Apple's for details and dates,
and we look forward to seeing you all come on down for these events.
(PS - During these events, we give away goodies and offer super
coupons for cool stuff from our website).
Expanding on TV
Hippy Gourmet is getting ready to make some really big headlines
this coming Fall, including expanding our series to a national
and very well known Cable channel that will be carrying us, in
addition to our existing relationship with PBS national. What
this means to all of our fans and future fans is that our new
and improved Hippy Gourmet TV Show will be viewable nationwide
and at more convenient times as well!
Country Home Magazine
This June the Hippy Gourmet
will be featured in Country Home Magazine in a really cool article called "The Dish."
It's a light piece that covers our host (Bruce Brennan) and his roots to sustainable
agriculture, alternative energy and the good vibes of bringing family and friends
together through the love of food. The Hippy Gourmet shares the page with some other
'flower power' products and companies, like Sage Kitchen, Artgirl Cookies,
Total Tea and a book by Jeremy Jackson called 'A good day for a picnic.'
Well anyway, the Hippy Gourmet believes that every day is a good day for a picnic!
Earth Day was a big success
Earth day was awesome this year!
We're seeing so many more articles and TV news stories around the world that are highlighting
the importance of sustainable agriculture and aquaculture, alternative energy, conservation,
recycling and endangered habitats for wildlife, flora and fauna. The best part of Earth day
is that it shows kids around the world how to live life on a less footprint on the planet.
