I had an amazing collection of cookbooks that I inherited from my grandmother, who was a gifted chef and hostess (and Admiral's wife). Lost it all in the house fire.
I have about 30 running feet of shelf space filled with cookbooks.
In college, took night classes one school year with a chef from the Culinary Institute of America.
Chef and I decided at the end of the classes that while I was great cook, did not have the drive or ego to be a chef.
