On a Saturday morning, in the spring of 2007, I was standing, with my sister and our children, in the family kitchen of our late parents, all talking and enjoying the good company while planning the food for a gathering of 17 people the same night.

But we had a problem; we didn’t have any cookbooks handy and we didn’t have the internet connection in the country house to search for the ingredients to a specific recipe.

‘Molasses cookies, ok, lets make them by memory. Grand-Père in maple syrup; should be easy, we need maple syrup to start with and… Ok, Mashed Potatoes with bacon, cream and cheese, now we don’t need a recipe for this one, but we don’t know how to make those Potatoes Cookies that our grand-mother and aunt used to make…’.

On a Saturday morning, in the spring of 2007, I was standing, with my sister and our children, in the family kitchen of our late parents, all talking and enjoying the good company while planning the food for a gathering of 17 people the same night.

But we had a problem; we didn’t have any cookbooks handy and we didn’t have the internet connection in the country house to search for the ingredients to a specific recipe.

‘Molasses cookies, ok, lets make them by memory. Grand-Père in maple syrup; should be easy, we need maple syrup to start with and… Ok, Mashed Potatoes with bacon, cream and cheese, now we don’t need a recipe for this one, but we don’t know how to make those Potatoes Cookies that our grand-mother and aunt used to make…’. So right there, by pure passion for family gathering and cooking together with mothers and daughters in the kitchen, I decided to write a cookbook, regrouping our family recipes, the ones we do together, when we find ourselves under the same roof.

I have cooked most of my life, without much of a recipe, just like my mother had showed me. A little bit of this, taste it and adjust the ingredients so it will be eatable. Now, you are asking yourself: ‘Then why a cookbook?’

A cookbook is a trustable instrument to have on hand, when we start cooking. At the beginning, we all need a guide to put confidence in ourselves and in our meals. Once the confidence in our ability gets deeper inside of us with each successful recipe, we extend our horizon of trial and errors, finally ending by using our instinct and our taste bud for each new recipe. We become passionate about food, herbs and spices and before we know it, we have developed this passion for food that we get from our mothers, right from the beginning.

With a little bit of this and a little bit more of that, walk with me in my kitchen with La Belle Aurore and let’s keep on passing to our Daughters our love for food.
