I’ve always loved to cook. My mom taught me to cook from a very young age. It was one of the ways we spent quality time together. She patiently explained things to me, why she did them in a certain way, and how to be creative with a recipe. The result was always delicious and brought our whole family – and usually a lot of friends – together. Sometimes they were quick meals, sometimes they were long evenings laughing and sharing with each other. It’s always a great way to spend time with the people you care most about.
