I've been mulling over putting together a book of essays about food and family called My Inner Fruitcake. This title was suggested to me by my cousin, Deborah Freedman, a wonderful children's book author whose gorgeous new book, Blue Chicken, is out this month. Debbie is an artist and an architect and the illustrations in this book are breathtaking. When I showed the book to my younger son, he said, "I can't believe someone in our family made this!"
We spend a lot of time thinking about chicken in our family. I've been cooking and writing about chicken a lot, maybe because it's a wonderful thing to make on a cold night. (Needless to say, I've never made fruitcake.) Below is the first of what I'm hoping will be a series of columns for Patch called "Sunday Night Supper," columns that will be about cooking and feeding the people you love and occasionally yell at. Of course, this column is about chicken. If you would like to read more about food and family on Patch, please go to Patch and leave a comment. Thank you!
