What would you say is their specialty? My great grandmother was known for her pies. And my great aunt was great with short ribs. How about you? Who could cook for you ANYTIME!

For all the stuff I like most...my darling wife. For the best Italian food, my friend Mario's Mother (she came over from Italy after WWII). For more sophisticated and modern fair, my talent soon to be 20 year old step son.

Hey newlands, Can't say I've heard of Tomato gravy. What's that like? Is it a southern thing? I'm a northern girl myself. Thanks :)

My mom is the best cook i have ever known.she makes all dishes deliciously, especially biryani. Not only me, my cousins n uncles also like them most. And the secret behind these recipes is that My Father taught her cooking. So sweet na...

It's hard to find someone better than mom, isn't it? I am not familiar with biryani. What is that made from? Thank you for your response:)

I agree. Do you have cooking shows on television in India? We have a marvelous thing called "The cooking channel" (am i right, americans?:))These shows are very popular! Thanks for your response.

The best cook I grew up with was my grandmother. She could cook anything and made these old time dsert recipes that no one has ever matched. All my sisters grabbed her recipe books when she passed away. She had several with handwritten recipes that were a treasure of old time Trinidadian cooking.

Hey, I think I'm chasing you around. I just responded to your black-eyed peas post. I know nothing about Trinidadian cooking and I'd be really interested to learn more. Hope I catch you posting them somewhere.
