There are moments in my life that I am performing the simplest of tasks when a memory from long ago flashes through my mind. “Rinsing a bowl of raw egg under hot water will bake the egg onto the bowl” ~ My Uncle. As a teenager, I spent a summer vacation with relatives. My uncle was the influence in my interest in Italian Cuisine. This was where I learned many tips. One being the raw egg.
Another wonderful memory was being introduced to Vichyssoise. I had never had cold soup.
I had been invited to a friend’s home. I don’t recall the occasion, maybe a bridal shower, bon voyage…who knows. That was 40 + years ago.
