I love Southern cooking - sharing communal laid back food like smokey ribs and corn on the cob and blackberry pie.

I love Southern cooking - sharing communal laid back food like smokey ribs and corn on the cob and blackberry pie. I love spicy regional food like Cajun and Creole, Mexican and Thai. I enjoy the complexities of French cuisine and I do love junk food. I'm from an Italian background with grandmothers who were fantastic cooks - one from the North of Italy and the other from the south - so I got the best of both cuisines growing up. I also love reading about the history of food - especially medieval and Victorian cooking/ etiquette/ food produce and what people ate way back in the day.

I know! Weird isn't it! I used to watch Huey but not anymore - there's no point (he's annoying anyway because he rambles on too much about nothing) It seems to be a very greedy thing to do, considering most people are aware of what he's doing - I don't know why he still charges $$$. (maybe he's dreaming of retiring to the South of France or something...)

Hi Jackie, Congrats on your hall of fame award! Thanks for all your supportive comments so far, and I look forward to seeing many more of your recipes in 2010. My goal is to get into the kitchen at home more and be able to share more!

Was a member of Huey's Cooking Club for a good many years - until he nicked my byline "Never trust a skinny cook!" for his last publication!!
Lost the plot with his show - far too much "PRODUCT PLACEMENT"... it's so overt and in-your-face it's obnoxious. Made it a point NOT to buy brands promoted in the show - but that's just me being, well, me! lol
