Welcome to Food that Builds Community. Food is a wonderful, therapeutic way of linking people together. If you love cooking it’s a great way to enjoy others’ company, including strangers. Food and sharing are activities to treat with respect, which in turn reward us with enriching friendships. Our community grows and strengthens everyday because of these links.
Although cooking can be creative and sacred, these recipes are NOT! Join this, our electronic community, and tell us what you think, how you used them, and any delightfully juicy adjustments you make. Or, just read them for fun — without any coercion to try to make something you’d rather not. I know that a lot of people love reading cookbooks, and still go back to the recipes they — and their extended families — have used for years. Fine with me.
My dearest wish for you is: may your cookbooks be increasingly splotched with food stains!
