Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Pomegranate Molasses

Although not a dessert sauce you would find gracing our ancestors tables, this contemporary sweet sauce truly cuts through the molasses flavor with a tangy knife.
