On this Valentine’s Day, I reflect back to when I first met Patricia, the ideal modern woman, desirable on so many levels: artistic, strong, beautiful, and smart. I placed her high upon a pedestal. And being the saint that I am, I did this despite the fact that her cooking skills left something to be desired. Judge not, I thought, she is a victim of the times — times during which it was simply not fashionable to “just stay home to bake cookies.” But she loves good food and is a quick study. And so, (after many culinary renditions of “The Rain in Spain”), I am most pleased to debut Patricia’s version of Pasta e Fagioli. You’ve come a long way, baby! And I must say, as an ideal modern man, I am ecstatic that American society now recognizes that the art of cooking transcends both gender and politics. Cooking is giving and giving is love. And love is universal. So cook your heart out. Spread your love with food. And do it with Patricia’s Pasta e Fagioli!
