My dad. My mom hated cooking and I inherited that from her. My dad has always been the cook in the family and slowly, very slowly, his love for cooking began to rub off on me.

My great grandmother, both grandmothers, my mother and my first wife; They were all such lousy cooks I had to learn to cook in self defense!

My Mom. She raised 3 boys by herself, worked full time and cooked every night. As I got out on my own I often reflected on how she was always there for us and made sure we were ok no matter what. When I get to busy, I think of her. When I cook, I think of her When I am playing with my kids, I think of her. She is part of everything I do and is why I am who I am. My Mom is my greatest influence.

Mom would be #1. She claimed that neither her mother, nor my father's, could cook worth a poop (I'm putting this more politely than Mom would). They were old French-Canadian women who just wanted to put calories on the table for men who needed tons of food. One of Daddy's first gifts to Mom was a cookbook. Dad was in the Air Force, and Mom had many, and I do mean many, friends who were "war brides": Japanese, French, German, etc, women who taught her their cuisines. So I grew up eating all of these things. My friends' mothers were also war brides, mostly French. So we ate things like coq au vin, rabbit, suki-yaki, etc, on a rather regular basis.

You're going to love "My Life in France...." I could hear Julia talking while I was reading her stories.

My mom, hands down. She was a wonderful cook, and she loved to cook and entertain family and friends, and so do I. (She didn't want me to go into catering, however. )

Then, whe Mastering the Art came out, I got it as a gift, and cooked my way through it, learning French cooking.

In between there, came "Aunt Rachel" and my Girl Scout leader, who taught me Italian cooking.

While stationed in Italy, I hunted with Henry Nicholas, a DAC working for the Army Corps of Engineers. Henry was from Brittany, and made all the greater a hunting partner because he used to cook our harvests.

My dad. He is an amazing cook and he isn't afraid to try new things. My step mom as well, together they installed a huge love of cooking/eating.
