Everybody has a story. It is how these stories are conveyed that determines the ability of the storyteller to attract the attention of the listeners. The same may be said of food. Everybody is capable of preparing a meal, but it is how the food is prepared and presented that attracts those for whom it is prepared and whether or not it will be memorable.
Certain foods frequently take us back through time to our childhood, or to particularly memorable moments in our lives. Many of those memories are associated with gatherings of family and friends and the anticipation and excitement of being together, eating delicious food, hearing new and often repeated stories, as well as the jokes and laughter that accompanied each anecdote.
