Food brings people together. When I was growing up it was the favourite topic of conversation at the dinner table. This was the same table on which my mother would roll out her fresh pasta, knead bread or bottle preserves. The table was our altar, a place to eat, discuss, argue, laugh, sometimes cry.
“…the family that cooks together stays together!’
As a parent, I strongly believe in implementing good eating habits from an early age and showing my kids where our food comes from and how to cook it. I was taught how to respect food and our leftovers were always put to good use.
I love cooking with my children and hope that I am passing on some of my family traditions which will stay with them forever.
