The nugget of an idea for this book is something she had on her mind for a while. It is not just what we cook and put on the table every day, it’s so much more than that, she feels. Her culinary skills have so many stories wrapped around it. She firmly believes food isn’t solely about nourishment, there is always emotion attached to it, and is many times a conversation starter around the dinner table.
