So much more than a cookbook

Yesterday, I sadly closed Madame Benoit book after reading it all.  Her cookbook featured recipes of her grandparents,her mom's along with her daughter, Monique's recipes which she proudly featured.  It was a beautiful way to spend a snowy winter weekend as in reading the book , as it brought many memories of Mom and her culinary skills and life on the farm.. As I was reading Benoit's book, I was also listening to Mavis Staples being interviews by Holger Peterson  who thanked him for the memories that were rekindled for her by the interview.. I also thank Madame Benoit for the memories that I she has stirred up for me.  Hmmm..who shall I lend the book to enjoy- JF or Jonathan???
