I am so proud of my mom for having the spirit of always being up for a new adventure in life, and when we began with the idea of Cooking With Teresita in 2005, we never dreamed that people would have reacted so positively to the simplest idea of spending a day cooking traditional Latin cuisine. Add to her Argentine cooking a day spent at her beautiful country-like home in Buenos Aires, Argentina and people started to come and today she is visited weekly by passionate foodies and curious gourmands.
My mom has been a passionate cook for as long as I can remember and is because of her that I have found comfort in all things edible. Food at home reminds me of good times. and her now renowned Traditional Argentine empanadas Argentinas are a true reflection of the warmth and care she has for those around her (if you would try one, you will understand what I am saying). At the age of 60 my mom agreed to begin with a new adventure after owning and operating a grammar school in Argentina for nearly 25 years where she was a true pioneer introducing children to the benefits of healthy eating. At her school she personally conducted what she called an "ecology" class in which children were taught to grow vegetables and fruits and the importance of supporting the fragile town economy by purchasing goods from local farmers. Okay, I will cut it off here because you are not her daughter and you might find it boring.
