Late night learning of various cheeses! I finally found the courage to write IN my cook books and make notes!
My mother always said “you need to learn how to cook traditional food. When I’m not around you’re going to miss it!” And boy was she right! I should’ve taken notes! I miss her cooking and while the recipes in this book are the very same foods I grew up eating, they’re not the same as how my mom makes it. And she doesn’t write (not particularly well in Hmong or English), she also gives the worst verbal directions, bless her heart. I am desperately missing her comfort food.
Perfect Saturday morning at Caffe Aficionado in Arlington, VA
