  1. I’m looking forward to your entries. I really enjoyed your book and column and expect this new format to be equally stimulating and informative.

  2. It is amazing how you navigated different avenues from banking to being an author of a book on food. I joined the bank in Amsterdam after you retired but if you ever come and visit this part of the world again, give me a shout. 😉
