A Fine Line
What The Fans Say
"Dear Val. I saw your amazing story on PBS last night and felt compelled to write you. Congratulations on your success story. With all the obstacles thrown your way you could have quit, but you forged on. You are a true role model. Continued success. I will be sure to visit your restaurant if I'm ever in the area."
"Omg, what an extraordinary film! I just saw it on PBS (middle of the night, couldn't sleep) and was blown away. It is so well-done, so well-crafted. Amongst the many female chefs featured in the film, Val shines as the true hero (they are all heroes, but her story is the most compelling). What an amazing woman, chef, mother, yiayia, restauranteur, mentor, boss, human being! Thank you for uplifting me in the midst of this COVID-19 crisis, thank you for sharing this wonderful story. Thank you for highlighting female chefs so comprehensively. The entire film is so relatable to me personally, for many reasons. I plan on sharing this with friends and family, and hopefully, will visit your restaurant one day in the future! It's a long way from Milwaukee to Holden, but well worth the road trip or flight! Joanna James, thank you for sharing your talents and your mom with all of us in such a lovely way! Best regards, Stili Klikizos, Milwaukee, WI"
