Together Around the Hearth.
Around the hearth one should be cooking and we are perpetually.
As my youngest daughter was growing older I slowly started cooking interesting food to live up to her name for me: “The Cooker.”
Ever since my oldest daughter was ten, she watched me cook with interest. Then she started preparing food herself and became quite good at it. And her younger sister also tried to pitch in whenever she was in the mood.
Thanksgiving, of course, was a major cooking event. First by myself, and then with my daughter, we cooked our thanksgiving feasts using Bon Appetit’s annual holiday recipes.
In 2007 my oldest daughter decided to enroll in Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. She studied there for several years and graduated in 2011. Nice!
