Road Tripping to Telluride, Colorado

Jeffrey Donenfeld Travel and Adventure, Trips Leave a Comment

This past weekend, my siblings Jill and Jason and I took a quick road trip from our home in Boulder, Colorado down to Telluride, Colorado. Getting there, we did a one-way car rental to Montrose. From Montrose, we picked up my truck, and then went in to Telluride. Returning, we drove my truck back to Boulder, for the parents to use. A few pics from our great road trip!

Congratulations to my sister Jill on making it into the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 list! Awesome! From Forbes: What NetJets did for private jets, Donenfeld’s The Culinistas is doing for private chefs: making luxe affordable. For $300, plus groceries, her team of chefs cook eight personalized dishes that will last a week. The service is now available in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and Donfeld has expanded into cookbooks and television appearances. “In whatever incarnation tomorrow’s generation has its Martha Stewart-like role,” says restaurateur Danny Meyer, “Jill Donenfeld is likely to play it.” Here’s the video of her interview..


The Yellow Table: Q&A with Jill Donenfeld + A New Cookbook!

Congrats Jill on a super writeup in The Yellow Table! It’s tough to describe my friend Jill Donenfeld in just a few words. (Though impressive does come to mind…) By age 22, the personal chef and entrepreneur had already started her own business (The Culinistas) and written a cookbook (Mankafy Sakofo: Delicious Meals from Madagascar). Donenfeld founded The Culinistas in 2006 in New York City with the goal of bringing healthy, home cooked, customizable meals into the homes of busy professionals. The concept was a hit. Now, five years later, Donenfeld has expanded The Culinistas to Los Angeles and Chicago, and is coming out with her second cookbook: Party Like a Culinista (Lake Isle Press).
