A PASSION PASSED DOWN THROUGH FOOD

A PASSION PASSED DOWN THROUGH FOOD

Celine was a name that was synonymous with good food in my home. She was my grandmother’s cook. My mother still tells me stories about watching Celine in the kitchen. Her secret, she’d say in a hushed tone, was her sauces; sauces, she’d say with emphasis, are the secret to being a great cook.  

Celine didn’t just make sauces; she turned food into something you looked forward to. She understood that the meal really started with the aroma of the food simmering on the stove. She’d plan the food so it would build to a crescendo and conclude with the perfect sweet. But the end only really happened when the coffee was served and we’d relax and let the banter and laughter continue as we sat, enchanted by the pleasures we’d just consumed. 

Celine knew that if the food was good, the conversation would follow. She knew she was not just creating food to nourish us. She was participating in creating a way of life.

Celine’s job was to cook, but her legacy was passion. She focused on food with the understanding that it would bring people together. She knew how important that was and loved the fact that she affected our lives with the food we ate and the relationships that were nurtured.

How could you not be thankful for that kind of love?

Today is September 11th and I couldn’t let it go by. There is so much to remember, so many people who lost their lives and so many who did all they could to help. And so many of those helpers, those angels, are still losing their lives for their efforts. I don’t want to forget or pretend that nineteen years is a . . .

LE KITCHEN COOKBOOK—THE COUNTDOWN IS ON

Why did I write a cookbook? When I was learning to cook, I looked for a book that would explain procedures in a way that would teach me to do more than just follow a recipe. I wanted to understand basic techniques and what made some dishes exceptionally good and others not so much. There were plenty of cookbooks that...
