  1. I do very much appreciate your work Scott…when I read about the wine, cheese and other delicacies you write about – i can basically smell them through your words – keep it up!
    Best, Rob

  2. 250 books!?

    Would you consider donating any of them?

    Future Chefs is a Boston-based scholarship and mentoring non-profit for motivated high school students wishing to pursue a career in the culinary arts. It’s an extraordinary program that’s empowering the next generation of chefs.

    Cookbooks, food novels, historical accounts of food cultivation/production, chef biographies, etc are an invaluable resource for culinary students, foodies, and chefs alike and I’m sure they would be extremely grateful to receive such a gift.

  4. Hi, just wondered if you are the son of Walter Haas, and Flo Haas, formerly of Plainfield, NJ. If so, then hi. I was your father’s friend when you and your sister were born.

  5. I am still in nj, about 10 miles from the pennsylvania border. I like it very much here. I have been retired for 19 years. The plainfield area is not the same anymore.
    Iris and I were very happy with the move.
    Unfortunately I lost Iris 2 years ago.
    Tell me about Heidi and your folks.

  6. I was just curious as to how you found the time! I think it’s wonderful that you enjoy Japan and its food enough to want to show it to other people. 🙂

  9. Hi Scott, loved Back of the House have you thought about doing a follow up since Tony Maws opened up Kirkland Tap and Trotter? So much of the book focused on how he didnt/couldnt rely on his staff but that must have changed for him to branch out to the second restaurant? Thanks for the great read!
