All I learned about the joys of hospitality I learned from my Aunt Bess…..
My father celebrated holidays of every variety and made them exciting with creativity and excitement…
At some point my parents no longer entertained large groups.
Bess took over that position in the family….
All her entertaining involved generous amounts of delicious food…even if it was gourmet takeout when she was older…..
All good relationships and memories of our family come from these occasions…..
Nothing brings families together like sharing a day filled with food.
