By John Birdsong

I recently joined Chef Daniel Mowles of Lily’s Restaurant for a live cooking demonstration at Williams Sonoma on 59th street in midtown manhattan. It was a great opportunity for Chef Mowles to showcase and share his cooking. Chef Mowles focuses on fresh local ingredients that are in season, local, and refined. Join us as he prepares a delicious Lobster fondue. It is seriously good.
