My grandmother was the best cook. But she had no patience. She hated to see a meal ruined. She'd shoo me away and take over. So I never had the whole hands-on experience. But I watched. Her and twenty years worth of cooking shows
for countless hours. And then I got married and moved countries. So, now I am having to get the hands-on experience trying to recreate favourites from back home. Cos you can't get good Mexican or Cajun food in this neck of the woods. :-) So it's time to get in there and get cooking!
