Thankyou for the thought Gail.
My Gran was a “freelance” cook in the “big houses” in England. My Mum learned all from her and I learned for my Mum ! I also used to do a little cooking for others on occasions .. catered dinner parties/gathering for friends so they could just enjoy their guests.
Being able to cook and adapt is also what has seen me through the hard times as well as the good times. When folk have little money and resources they need to know what fun can be had with cheap nourishing basics as well. Its surviving and at least eating as well as possible. The other end of it is the fine foods also.
Cooking … being able to share that is a wonderful thing… and sometime a lifeline in several ways.
