I baked my first Tarte Tatin late last fall.
I had come across the recipe in Kitchen Wisdom (Knopf, $29.95), Julia Child’s latest cookbook and a nifty, compact collection of her favourite recipes.
For 18 years, as food editor and food columnist for the Toronto Star, I shared my passion for things culinary.
Most important and gratifying was the joyous connection it gave me to people who enjoy and prepare food – from the Filipino taxi driver who enthusiastically described how his mother makes Chicken Adobo to the firefighters with whom I cooked and then ate a luscious, convivial meal of grilled chicken and rhubarb crumble at their downtown Toronto firehall one lovely evening.
