My earliest memories are memories of food. My grandmother making her famous coffee cake... My mother preparing for a dinner party... My uncle showing me how to make sausages! My mother-in-law talking to me everyday when I was first married about what I was going to make for dinner...My friends saving me when my daughter died by making me teach them how to cook and insisting they pay me. I was to write up the recipes and they would be at my house next week--then there was a call from UCLA asking me to teach cooking at their university! A wave of food has always orchestrated my life. It has always stayed with me through thick and thin, it is my way now of giving back to a world which has been so generous and loving! Teaching others how to prepare food has enriched by life and given me purpose. It has allowed me to fly higher then I ever thought one person could soar! For the people who have loved me, I give you, "Cathy Cooks for Good."
