Cookbooks: Fueling Culinary Passions

Category: Culinary

Author: Thomas Drummer, Culinary Director

For numerous chefs, there exists a pivotal cookbook that served as the catalyst for their culinary journey. This single book ignited an idea, unlocking a passion for cooking they may not have realized they possessed. Cookbooks transcend mere collections of recipes; they serve as windows into cultures, histories, and personal narratives. With each page turn, a new adventure, tradition, or innovative technique unfolds.

Every recipe and cookbook, whether passed down through generations or reimagined, enriches our culinary culture at The Kentridge Senior Living. Exploring culinary resources nurtures and evolves our love for food and cooking.

Currently, I don’t have a cookbook collection; nevertheless, I cherish the recipes passed down from my mother as my favorites. In the 90s, as I embarked on my culinary career, she entrusted me with her recipes.

To capture my interest, a cookbook must narrate the stories behind the dishes and their origins. One of my favorite recipes that I’ve developed and modified is my version of mac and cheese.
