In a previous chapter, I was the chef/owner of two small bustling restaurants here in Ankeny, Iowa, along with my husband, Bob and three (then very young) daughters, Emily, Rachel and Robin.
As a star struck teen, back in the 70's, I found myself apprenticing at the infamous Alice's Restaurant in Stockbridge Mass (made famous by the song and movie of the same name, written by Arlo Guthrie). There I was mentored by the iconic Alice Brock herself, a moment in time that was to set my feet upon a path from which I would never look back.
Food has the amazing power to connect people. Our world is a much smaller, friendlier and less scary place when we share a lovely meal.
Come on this wonderful culinary adventure with me. There's always more to learn!
Let's cook together and share a meal. The table is set! -Deb
