"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

Family Memories from Susan Aud Sonders: This was a family tradition at each family reunion in the early years. The men (and kids) of the family took turns hand cranking the ice cream machine and it took all afternoon. I can still feel the excitement that I felt as a young child, knowing that the hand cranking was done and the ice cream was ready to be dished out. It was a magical part of summer! Family Memories from Bettye Pruitt Becker: When I was growing up we used to make homemade ice cream. The guys would sit me on top of the freezer to hold it down when it was getting stiff!
