I Enjoy Cooking With Wine….

I enjoy cooking with wine and sometimes I even put it in the food I’m cooking.  – Julia Childs

I have always enjoyed cooking. After Mom abandoned my brother, Dad, and me I did most of the cooking. That was when I was about 10 years old. Of course at that time I didn’t know about cooking with wine but I did make pretty good biscuits and gravy among other things. Dad was the son of a pig farmer so we ate lots of pork. 🙂 It would be years later before I discovered things like Coq Au Vin. This reminds me that I haven’t made that dish in years. I need to put it on my list.

I enjoyed Julia Childs before it was popular for guys to watch that sort of show.  I guess I was supposed to be watching baseball and such but that never appealed to me. I think that if I, like kids today, had been given the option of culinary school I would probably have had a more fulfilling career. It is not that I didn’t enjoy the career I ended up in but the grass is always greener…

Cooking is still very much a part of my life. Besides cooking about three hundred meals a week at the soup kitchen where I volunteer I also prepare most of the meals for my wife and I. So, here is to you Julia. I enjoy cooking with wine also. Just as you taught me….
