She also told me that darker was better than lighter when it comes to nutrition from your vegetables. Many moons later, I was taught the same thing in high school home ec classes. Then I moved to North Dakota where everything was white on most plates (and tasted like it). I still think Mom has it right. Not only is it prettier, and more pleasing to the tongue, but you're more likely to get what you need from the plate as well.
Claire you can make your own Cream Fraiche with heavy cream, and buttermilk... Your mother was a smart lady, brown food just tastes better...

i'm very into color/contrast. there's the people that offer broccoli so withered & grayish in color i could weep during presentation, lol! then there's those that own an appreciation; (like your Mom & yourself & many others amongst us, that appreciate food presentation almost as much as the food! :)
