Rahm, AKA, Chef Rahm Fama, as I noted in my August ’09 post, https://charmainesmusepallet.wordpress.com/2009/08/31/chefs-rahm-fama-jennifer-carroll-dakota-weiss-can-they-make-quin-happy/ is one of our kids. He’s not biological, but we met Rahm when he was a skinny kid.
He and daughter, Chef Dakota Weiss (now executive chef Hotel Shangri-La, Santa Monica), suffered through the same Santa Fe junior high school together. Rahm’s face was a regular at our Santa Fe home. Sometimes things got bumpy for him, and I wanted to take that kid, and hug him until I squeezed those adolescent uglies away.
We didn’t see him much when we moved north of Santa Fe and he moved west to Las Vegas. Then one day he showed up at our Santa Fe shop all grown up, married and with kids. He was executive chef at Santa Fe’s La Posada where he treated us to some delightful foods. My fave remains black pepper ice cream. I want it now!
Life moves on and Rahm is executive chef for Vail Resorts. His work has kept him mobile and on the road. So much so, that I have to share h is Facebook posts:
