A Teeny, Tiny Toot of the Horn

A Teeny, Tiny Toot of the Horn

I try to be humble. Really, I do. But I just got the most wonderful, the most joy-making, the most gratifying email about Parents Need to Eat, Too (the cooking class) and I can’t resist sharing:

First off: LOVED the class! Wonderful. I wanted it to go on longer. You are a natural teacher and a gifted recipe inventor. Delightful. All of the recipes just WORK. More than I can say for Nigella or some of the people I own the cookbooks of.

Second: you are very realistic and unpretentious when it comes to scale and ambition in your recipes. Bravo – so many parent-oriented cookbook authors are sooooo obnoxious in assuming that EVERY parent has a huge fancy kitchen in the suburbs , time and money to buy all premium ingredients and of course a kid that takes regularly scheduled 4 hour naps (!)

Not bad, eh? I’m starting to think about the next session now. It’ll probably start in mid-September, but there are so many Jewish holidays to juggle and I haven’t consulted the calendar yet… If you’d like an email with details when I have them, please leave a comment below or on WTEB’s Facebook page.

    The class sounds awesome. I want to come! (I love to cook but could use some help gourmet-ifying the food I make). Any chance you might offer a class on the West Coast?!

    Thanks, Jennifer! You never know, one of these days I may head your way…

    That's just wonderful, Debbie! I love your recipes so it's easy to see how your classes are a place of respite for foodie parents.

    How great! I love that you trumped Nigella. What a compliment!

    Deebie: Kudos on the fabulous email! And for every email complement that you get, there are probably several other people who feel the same way and are simply too busy to write. Well done!

    Debbie – I totally think you should do a 1-week Bay Area intensive. You and Harry can even stay with me and use my kitchen! I'm sure we could fill it in no time flat.

    Wow, thanks for the love, everyone! (And I loved that Nigella bit, too, Stephanie.) I'm blushing. For real.

    Rebecca, please don't tempt me.
