My dad taught me how to cook at very young age. We have pictures of me at 5 and 6 years old cooking my own breakfast! As a result, I was always able to cook for myself and our
family when I was growing up. Your style and devotion to food as it relates to our both our youth and heritage taught me to take cooking to heart as a joyful and rewarding personal
retreat. Some of your recipes and those I have developed from your teachings have become family favorites - nourishment for the body and mind.
I simply cannot thank you enough.
