Lush Life

To be a lush chef, does not mean to drink in excess - this can result in scary fires and bad dishes. A lush chef is one who enjoys gourmet cooking/baking, often with fresh ingredients and the smart use of one's home bar. If there happens to be half a bottle of beer, a glass of wine, or a sip of brandy left over...well, one cannot be wasteful. I give you permission to imbibe.

My Flask

Every lush out there should own a flask, and I didn't have one until recently.  I had hit up the Unique LA holiday shopping extravaganza back in early December with a couple of girl friends and found these colorful and whimsical hip flasks from Whimsy & Ink, based out of Anaheim.  My friend and I were going to be heading to Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, and there's just something about cold mountain weather that warrants carrying a flask around.  Plus, those crazy Utah liquor laws means weaker drinks and we can't have that now, can we?  It's my last day at the Festival, and it has certainly proven its use at packed parties with long bar lines.  Not only was it a great conversation starter, but I was able to spend more of my time mixing and mingling.  Now that's how a Lush Chef rolls...

I opted for a cerulean mustache design:
