Hi Tandy, great interview, her book looks wonderful!
It has some great treasures in it!
Great interview, now I want to eat at Chez Panisse!
You are so lucky you can!
I think grandmothers seem to inspire a love of cooking, my own grandmother was my influence too. I love the look of the cover recipe! YUM!
Thanks for sharing,
Thanks for the visit Julie, my grandmother was also a huge influence for me 🙂
