As I mentioned before, Roland's mother is an incredible cook. What's so strange is that you hardly see her cooking! Somehow, she is so adept at timing what needs to be done that you never see her slaving away in the kitchen. She prepares certain phases of a dish before she actually puts the meal together. It's like as if she cooks by magic!
One of the dishes that she prepared for us on a recent visit was guinea fowl. I'd never had a guinea bird but it was incrediby delicious. I've heard many times that they are the best defense against ticks but I had never heard that people ate them. Hers was delicious and it took my love of French Food to a new level.
Here's a great info page regarding guinea fowl:
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
