"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
According to Bobby...when Mom was first married, everyone was making gingerbread and Mom always served it with a lemon sauce. It is also delicious with whipped cream, a dollop of yogurt or sour cream, applesauce, a scoop of vanilla ice cream or....buttered warm gingerbread!
