Chef Dan’s favorite TV show is “Bored to Death” which stares Jason Schwartzman, Ted Danson, and Zach Galifianakis. In the season two premiere of the show, a conversation took place between Ted Danson “George” and his boss “Katherine” where she lays down the law about cutting back on expenses: No more lunches at the Four Seasons, no more Orangina… which she confidently pronounced…"Orange-Jai-nah".
You could imagine the look on George’s face when she said this and of course our Head Chef – Dan was bursting out laughing!!! No, laughing so hard he was crying!!!
This became a running joke between Dan and our daughter Kimberly. This was the laugh still being shared over dinner in this photo at Forgan’s as we dropped our daughter off at the University of St. Andrews.
So, in our household, we will always pronounce Orangina as "Orange-Jai-nah" and invite you to come share a glass with us in love and laughter :-).
