Column - It's not too late to learn to cook

The other day, sister Mary asked me if I wanted a bunch of her many cookbooks. She is running out of room.

"Nope, I don't have room either," I said. "Why don't you give them to your kids?"


She scoffed.

"I know my kids," she said. "They wouldn't want a roomful of cookbooks, especially if they have a McDonald's next door."

By which Mary meant those kids, grown adults now, can't - or won't - cook. It's not that they were brought up on junk food - far from it.
