Actually they know why I enjoy Clara so much. She reminds me of my grandmother who was a very important person in my life. I loved to cook with my grandmother and listen to the her stories of her childhood, so watching Clara on YouTube brings back beautiful memories.
Last night I sat down and soaked up the Introduction of Clara’s Kitchen. Clara’s childhood and family stories drew me in. She tells about her parents, her childhood and growing up in Chicago during the depression.
As I was reading I kept thinking.. people just don’t have stories like this anymore. I mean I know we are in a ‘recession’ but we really don’t know what it’s like to truly live through a depression.
I’ve only gotten through 10 pages of this book, but I’m already hooked. I haven’t even started in on the recipes and I’m already loving it.
With the encouragement of my husband (who will benefit by eating all the goodies) I’ve decided to cook my way through Clara’s Kitchen. I’m going to follow her memories and recipes and want you to join me.
Starting in a few days (as soon as I can get my hands on some Swiss Chard), I’ll be sharing my journey here on my blog.
Join me as I Cook with Clara.
