I'm following my HEART : so go for the book with your mum!
I believe there is so much more at stake here than celebrating good food and motivating and equiping people in the kitchen - Wouldn't it be great to cultivate and inspire great mother and daughter type relationships too ?
They say that" FOOD is the way to a MAN's HEART" - So I say
" If FOOD be the LANGUAGE of LOVE" -get together with your mum, pool those rich re-sauces and
Small bites, hors D'oeuvres, because they are so versatile and work in so many situations.
