I wrote this book about my mother to launch an event in her honor. My mother, Jo Auerbach, loved people and food. The event's goals are to bring diverse people together over foods representing different cultures.
The book tells my mom's story.
It includes recipes for some of the many things she loved to cook.
Available on Amazon.
Jo bought so much that food was always rotting in the cramped refrigerator. She loaded up on every fresh vegetable and fruit the supermarket offered. Most of them she forgot she had and three weeks later we'd toss the batch of rotting unused produce, only to go out the next day and buy more.
I once suggested that we could save money by buying fewer things to throw out. My mother's face clouded over like a sudden thunderstorm and she shot back at me much quicker than lightening. "Don't you ever, ever," she spit out, "tell me not to buy food." That food was her safety belt, her lifeline, her security blanket. I got it.
