My mother turned over the reins to the kitchen to me 43 years ago now. I have always had an artistic streak. I wanted to combine the craft of homemaking with my desire to be an artist. Food is a wonderful medium & the "color" combinations are endless.
I was blessed with the gift of being able to taste in my head.
A requirement when I have had to hire cooks in my employ.
I have recently developed a plethora of food allergies, so I have to more than ever rely on my taste memory.
I will not stop. I believe in learning to adapt,adopt & improve
It is my desire to share my knowledge with the next generation.Freely.
I also believe we can open the eyes & minds of others through their mouths.
My favorite things to cook
Anything I am up to the challenge!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am a member of the family of man I respect and embrace all cooking traditions as my own.We can learn so very much about each other by sharing our culinary traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Realizing that while, cooking involves a lot of math and science.It is above all personal,an expression of who and what I am.The first rule in my kitchen is that a recipe is only a suggestion. They can and should be able to be adapted to ones personal preferences,and level of ability.
Enjoy yourself,relax & share.
We take nothing to the grave with us.
My cooking tragedies
I do not believe in cooking tragedies.
I believe in learning experiences, those I have had.
