Food is an important part of my life. My father used to say: “No problem can be solved on an empty stomach.” Family dinners where sacred in our house, and they still are. Cooking together, sitting down at a table, with families and friends always makes me happy. We don’t go out and eat that often. My husband use to say: “Why go out when I have a gourmet restaurant at home.”
We mostly eat out when we travel. Food becomes an important experience from other cultures.
I always cooked. I always created things, just for the fun of it. Then things became a little complicated when people around me wanted a repeat performance. My husband still talks, a decade later, about the “good sauce”, he hasn’t forgotten it and I haven’t been able to recreate it.
So, not to repeat that; I started to make some notes, that turned into a notebook, which turned into cookbooks. All because of an unforgettable sauce that can’t be remembered, nor forgotten.
