My Mom was a wonderful cook who took chances, read cookbooks like they were novels, collected cooking magazines for decades, and shared her passion for beautiful food with me. We used to watch Julia Child and Graham Kerr together like other people watched soap operas. Now my mom is 87 and in a nursing home. I make and bring her favorite foods to her. She gave me the greatest compliment recently - telling me that when she eats my food, it's like she's eating her own creations. Thank you Mom!
