Penny Profiler #10

Katherine and Jeffrey Bergman.  Katherine (aka Kathy Reinys) grew up about 15 feet away from me.  Neighbor to the south with two other siblings and lovely parents in the aforementioned Newport Woods.  We were far enough apart in age as kids that we didn’t spend much time together.  We are close enough now to have wonderful life parallels and things in common.

Our social lives have collided with our mutual interests in great food and beverages.  Katherine and her husband Jeffrey are two of the most gracious hosts I’ve ever met.   Their pups Max & Lola did their part too (their enthusiasm was such I couldn’t even snap a shot without them wiggling).  On a recent dining adventure and storytelling evening we burst at the seams both from the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G food coming out of their kitchen, to the stories they have from their travels.  Look out Jane and Michael Stern!  Katherine and Jeffrey are the West Coast versions and I could listen to their stories all night long.  Delighted to reconnect as adults.
