Canyon Gourmet is a Canyon

My step brother and I came together a bit reluctantly over 30 years ago when his father married my mother. When Henry Miller married Ursula Kagan the family got weird. He had a son named Peter….So did my mother. Peter Miller and I (Peter Kagan), got married too. ┬áMy name was modified to make distinction clear, my family and very close friends call me Peter Mike.

Henry Miller had a beautiful shop, a haberdashery that we all worked in, some of us, a lot…me. Many great lessons were taken away from the experience. Peter Miller took his to Seattle where he has created a very successful business, Peter Miller Books. Architecture , design…gorgeously curated stuff…

A couple of weeks ago he and his talented wife Colleen , and architect, came to visit ┬áTopanga. one of the original foodies, a fantastic chef, Miller was super excited about the store. He woke up one morning and proclaimed,” Canyon Gourmet must be a Canyon.” OK….” You gonna need to relax into this” he assured me…Sounded like what a gets said to to a new cell mate In prison…He proceeded to totally rearrange the store with Colleen doing a plan to guide us….looks fantastic. Open. Everyone who walks in says LOVE what you’ve done to the place…..Credit to Danielle for her unflinching pursuit of simplicity…. come visit soon..
