Grant Cooper Graduation Celebration


He's got the looks, he's got the dedication, and lucky guy, he has the great parents too that helped him celebrate his college graduation.

The lucky guy? Grant Cooper who just graduated from Pitzer College. His parents Terry and Greg Cooper threw the backyard bash at their La Jolla home May 23rd, 2009, and as Terry said, it was a whole lot of cooking on her part for the whole week... and she enjoyed every minute of it.

Guests coming to the celebration came in casual chic attire. The buffet spread was big and so were the congratulations to Grant.

Among the mix there were Stu and Wendy Segall, Diane and Roy Bell, Roy Clark, Pam and Chris Smith, Sue and Lyle Kalish, Alison and Eric Figi, Beth and Tom Murray, and Susan and Fred Oliver.

More there included Terry's father, Jim Tehan and Terry's grandmother, Jo Tehan. They wouldn't miss this celebration for the world.

For Terry, it was a labor of love. "As far as the menu goes...I cooked all week long!  We originally were going to have it catered and then Grant made some changes in his travel I decided to cook for everyone!  I have cooked large quantities of food for many years, never professionally. Have you ever tried to feed 20 hungry collegiate water polo players in your backyard?  It is almost the same as feeding 40- 50 adults!"

The Menu included -

"Soup Shooters"  -  No spoons necessary, served in 4 oz. cups for sipping!
Tomato Basil,
Shitake Mushroom 
Carrot Orange

Finger Sandwiches
 Mini Croissants filled with turkey and provolone cheese
 Foccacia sandwiches of roast beef and jack cheese,
 Foccacia sandwiches of black forest ham and  swiss cheese

Curried Chicken and blueberry salad/served with crackers and cucumber slices - I am always asked for this recipe, but there isn't one....I just make it!

Cranberry Meatballs

Chilled Orange Vodka Shrimp

Some Still Like It Hot
By Fred Saxon

This is the 50th anniversary of the release of “Some Like It Hot”, the Oscar-winning and highly acclaimed comedy starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. In 1984, I was working for the Australian version of “The Tonight Show” when my camera crew and I came down to San Diego to cover the 25th anniversary of “Some Like It Hot.” The event took place at the Hotel Del Coronado where the film was shot, and those in attendance would include the surviving cast members Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis along with director Billy Wilder. Marilyn Monroe had died 22 years earlier.

Director Billy Wilder suggested that during my interview we put the Hotel behind him. Explaining “When you shoot in Paris, you see the Eiffel Tower, you don’t have to say you’re in Paris. So if you’re shooting at the Hotel Del, you see the hotel, you don’t have to say where you are.” I told him it was great to be directed by the great Billy Wilder. He said “I’m not directing, I’m just suggesting. DeMille made the Ten
Commandments, I make the ten suggestions”.


Tony Curtis told me he was thrilled when he was cast in the film and he knew with Billy Wilder directing, and co-stars Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe, it would turn out to be a good movie. Tony said he was especially pleased when Billy Wilder came to him and said he wanted him for the film. Tony said for him that was “top drawer”.

I asked Jack Lemmon if it seemed like it had been 25 years since they made the movie. He said, “It seemed like yesterday.” Jack said he couldn’t believe the time had passed so quickly. Now, 25 years later, I can truly appreciate what he said

That evening the celebration continued with a cocktail party and I was able to get a shot of Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, arms linked, toasting each other with champagne. It was a memorable moment.
