Lots of readers want to know how the Chiles en Nogada turned out today…Here’s one of them!

Jorge is always appreciative when we have a special meal.                                                                                                     

When I tell my sister Barbara about someone I have met, she always asks, “And are they a food person?” By that she means, “Do they like to cook?” My sister is a professional chef and feels that preparing food is an art form. Just as others love to paint, sculpt or write… Barb loves to cook. Her opinion has rubbed off on me.

Kathy K. (who I met in Duncan, B.C.) once said to me, “Preparing a wonderful meal is my way of nurturing those I love.”

And Marlene, a lovely lady who lived in Merida in the 90s  used to say she was honored when her friends cooked for her.

I think these women have got it just right!

We all have busy lives, or at least we think we do, and so cooking becomes a chore rather than a pleasure.

Give yourself a treat soon… Find someone whose company you enjoy, pour a nice glass of wine, play some of Alejandro Fernandez’ lovely Latin love songs, tie on your apron and try making something super for supper!

P.P.S. The Life Long Learning workshops will offer Cooking every Thursday. On March 1st, we’ll be making Chiles en Nogada. You can find more information about all the workshops by clicking here: Life Long Learning 2012
