Wonderful relatives that have passed away who were wonderful cooks.

Who are your greatly loved relatives that have passed away who were excellent cooks?

My great aunt was the best cook in our family, she owned a deli in the 1950s in Harrisburg PA. I don't think she baked her own bread, but most everything else she would make from scratch, even pickles and horseradish (except she would use strawberry preserves as strudel filling; apricot would have been better IMO). Her cooking also suffered from undersalting in her later years since my uncle had high blood pressure. My late brother was also a good cook, he once catered a friend's wedding as his wedding present to them. He also came in 2nd in a Florida statewide salsa contest.
