My First Cooking Teachers - Mom And Dad!
My mother taught me many things about her rich Bohemian/Austrian way of cooking. Her Wiener Schnitzel recipe is featured in my Squidoo page "Chef Keem's Best Recipes To Die From". So is her scrumptious potato salad preparation. (With a few of my own additions)
My dad knew how to make great cakes and dishes with incredible ground beef sauces.
We were the last family on the block to have a TV set or a car. Good food was always the first expense in our daily lives. Quality cold cuts and cheeses for dinner, excellent roasts for Sunday lunches, frequent restaurant visits to outstanding eateries - those were the things important to my parents.
I was spoiled rotten and I never knew it. Now I made a squidoo lens about my parents - my super heroes.
