Almost Speechless Sunday: My grandfather loved to cook had a saying...

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708

Almost Speechless Sunday: My grandfather on my mother's side loved to cook and he had a saying. If you love your stomach and love to eat, then you know how to cook. Needless to say he was a great cook, I heard many stories of his improvisation, when unexpected guests showed up at his door step. He knew how to stretch the meal and everyone would feel full and not feel hungry when they left....

So you can imagine my  surprise when we were at Vroman's in Pasadena for the   'After Christmas Sale' to buy our Holiday Cards for next year. Well see for your self.

Not quite the same words but the message resonated with me and reminded me of my Grandfather.

Hi Endre- and Happy Day after Christmas. Did you buy the book? I can remember meeting someone who stated that they did not like to eat and only did so because they had to. That is so not me!!!!!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  this book is not for everyone, it is mostly quotes from her, so if you are a Julia Child fan it is a nice book to add to the collection.... I just loved the Title and did not buy it.... on a side note like you two we have been fortunate to eat at some fantastic restaurants all over the Globe.... in our home I am the cook Diane is the food critic:)Endre

I do believe I have to agree with you, Endre... and with the premise of that book. It's along the lines of what I say about people who don't like cats and dogs... I don't totally trust them.

I fit both categories, Endre - I love to cook and eat (sadly, for my waistline)!

Like you, my passion for cooking came from my grands and I have passed it along to one of my boys. At 33, he's an amazing cook - makes his own breads & pastas too! I see a nice outdoor pizza oven in his future! LOL
