Hi and welcome to Epicurious Generations,
My name is Josée and I grew up in a family where food was extremely important - preparing it, shopping for it, endlessly discussing it and of course, and most importantly, eating it. My mother and grandmother were a terrific cooks and I spent a lot of time watching cooking shows with them. The house always smelt good and was a place of warmth, love and comfort for me.
I have always loved to cook and entertain friends and family - trying to recreated that wonderful feeling of home I knew as a kid. When we moved to Paris, the food thing moved to a whole new level and I took advantage of this wonderful opportunity to follow in Julia Child's footsteps and attend the Cordon Bleu. This was by far the hardest thing I ever did, but I had the time of my life.
I created this blog to share my recipes with my kids and so that we would all have easy access to them no matter where we are. I have had to adapt over the years as food tastes and preferences have evolved in our family: some are vegan, some of vegetarian and some are full blown carnivores. Trying to make this work for everyone can sometimes be a challenge but the goal is to create something that everyone will love and that tastes amazing.
