Dad claims he used to be a chef in New York. He also claims he taught both Gordon Ramsay and Julia Child. Never mind that Gordon Ramsay trained in France and Julia child is old enough to be his mother. (And she also trained in France)…
But, I’ve got to say, dad can cook with the best of them. We never went out to restaurants growing up because, as dad put it, “why in the name of Bacon and eggs when I go to a place where you have to pay twice for my food? Once for the tip, and once for something that’s hardly an edible piece of cow skat. No thanks, I’ll just make my own grab and eat it while sitting in front of the tube watching Perry Mason.”
More importantly, no restaurant can cook like dad. That’s the honest truth.
