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?

It is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, the first day of summer and the day before Father’s Day. Yes, it all happens on Saturday, June 20th—that’s a lot happening on one day. Just because we are still isolating doesn’t mean we can’t have a barbecue and celebrate. And good food is a must. I’m working. . .
