Jasmine, dear one, never speak like that on an open list where you =know=
the lady of your household lurks. Though I am not myself a chef (and
certainly not of your talents) by nature, still this humble apprentice
=does= descend from the Laurel lineage of the immortal Duchess Caellyn
y'vearn Fitzhugh.  I believe it is her voice advising you here.

The above picky-eating clods who don't appreciate your doubtless exquisite
feast, particularly at =that= price,  would be better advised saving their
money and going to a place where they will truly obtain the value and
cuisine they deserve ... Laird McDonald's of the Golden Arches comes to mind.
