My cooking is very robust in flavor – using lots of garlic, onions, fresh herbs and spices. I like to pump it up – but not just with spice as Emeril does. I pump up the other things. People do love my cooking. It is all about the ingredients – the best quality and the freshest – otherwise, make something else.
2 weeks ago I ran into Meryl Streep at our local butcher/ farm store. We had a conversation (OMG!) and she was lovely – even asked about me and where we lived! She was there picking out her vegetables just like all of us. (This is a tiny store.)
And then last night we watched Heartburn on Netflix on our computer. (we don’t have a TV in the country on purpose – my husband can be an addict and we are both addicts to news shows during the week.) It’s a great movie and a horrible one for the way her husband treats her. I think, if I remember correctly, it’s the story of Nora Ephron’s first marriage to Carl Bernstein, but I may be mistaken. Anyway, there’s cooking and birthing and babies in this movie and you can clearly tell Meryl has done it all in real life because she just so comfortable portraying it. She is a lovely lady.
