My grandmother, Mimi, was the greatest cook that ever walked the planet.
Remember the scene from Disney’s Ratatouille, where the food critic takes his first bite of the movie’s signature dish and it’s so spectacular, so luscious, so absolutely perfect that it whisks him back to fond memories of his mother’s kitchen as a young boy. Here’s the scene on YouTube.
Every time I make Mimi’s chocolate pie I am transformed back to sitting on her kitchen counter, as a little girl, and watching her master this scrumptious dessert.
It takes a lot time to make it, since you have to stir the chocolate for a while, but with each stir, I think about Mimi and the efforts and love she put into everything that came from her kitchen.
