Unbeknownst to me until yesterday morning I had a celebrity chef here for the weekend. She and her husband were visiting family in the area. I didn't know who she was until another guest recognized her and pulled me aside to tell me. Yikes! This woman is a major food editor and has her own TV cooking show. Of course once I realized who she was my nerves kicked in and I started to rethink every aspect of my B&B. Was the food perfect? Was her room perfect? Good Lord will the rain hold off another day while she is here so she can enjoy the view? I went insane (which isn't a stretch, believe me) for a few hours. Then it dawned on me that this woman was just like every other guest I had here this weekend. Wonderful, kind, funny, and very appreciative. I told her that the other guest clued me in to who she was and we had a good laugh. I think she really liked being anonymous. After she left this morning I wished I had asked her some cooking tips, or had her sign something (I totally blanked on our guest book and I don't own any of her cookbooks), or asked to have my picture taken with her but then maybe she would not have liked that. We don't get many celebrities here (at least that I recognize). Do you? If so, do you ask for autographs or ask to have your picture taken with them or do you treat them like regular folk? She could not have been any kinder or more gracious.
