This is a book of my Mom's favorite recipes that were served to me as I was growing up.
The sights, sounds and aromas always enticed me into the kitchen. As a very young boy, I became enthralled with cooking, even then, trying things a different way -- my way. Sometimes successful. Sometimes not.
This is a book of dishes -- Mom's way.
I was always impressed with the wonderful dishes that came out of my Mother's kitchen. Even simple, everyday fare became a delight to those lucky enough to be partaking in her creations.
Then, when she went all out, preparing one of her famous dinner parties, you knew you were in for an extraordinary treat.
This is a book about what it was like growing up being served these wonderful dishes.
I am the son of one of the most wonderful cooks in the world. Johnny
