Back

Judith Mackay Stirt was born and raised on the island of Jamaica. She developed not only a love of bright colors and spicy food, but a deep appreciation and respect for all the many household cooks who worked as the unsung heroes of her childhood. They were hired to cook not only meals for the immediate family, but to cater to large crowds of people, as these gatherings were the chief form of entertainment in those days. Good cooks were so much more than people with culinary skills. They embodied the Archetypes of Emperor, Mother, Teacher, Judge, Confessor, and High Priestess.Judith may have left Jamaica, but it has never left her, as she seems to gravitate towards small islands. She currently lives on Gabriola (a small island) off the coast of Vancouver Island (a large island) in British Columbia, Canada. She lives with her husband, David, who is also a good cook. Close by is her sister, Nancy, to whom this book is dedicated, and also within a five minute’s drive is her mother, Norma, the original good cook. They are planning a takeover, but don’t tell anyone.
