In the beginning there was Mom and Mom was a cook. In fact my Mom created cooks, Karen, Beverly, Claudia and Adrienne. She gave us a food foundation including a desire to feed others, a passion for fresh ingredients and basic food preparation skills. She cooked in the style of her generation including roasted meats, creamed vegetables and Russian dressing. We gained food appreciation from her and then reinvented ourselves as the cooks that we are today.
