“I think one of the terrible things today is that people have this deathly fear of food…”

Julia Child

I am not one of those people. Neither is our daughter. This is her self-made birthday cake: a dark chocolate “birch” tree with peppermint buttercream frosting.

From a young age, making pasta quickly became a favorite food sport for Anna Grace. From the pasta to the Béchamel to the Bolognese, she prepared the entire delicious pan of lasagne.

Having had a Bangladeshi nanny for four years made a culinary impression on her, too: to this day Anna Grace has yet to meet a curry she doesn’t like. Her beat-the-summer heat dish? Aloo Frankie, a toasted chapati topped with curried potatoes, shredded paneer, and chopped vegetables.

Eggplant is the least liked vegetable in our household, by all of us. That is, until I discovered Ratatouille with Roasted Garlic and Parmesan.

Hong Kong Curry Meatballs. Served with slurpy Udon noodles and Iced Peppermint Tea.

Our go-to pre-hike breakfast, Brown Bread topped with Emmentaler, Apples, and Caramelized Onions.

To finish. Up until this recipe my baking repertoire count stood at exactly three. These Dark Chocolate Chunk Chocolate and Sea Salt Cookies bring the tally to four.
