Kathy Johncox, The Last Generation of Women Who Cook

The Last Generation of Women Who Cook

The Last Generation of Women Who Cook, by Kathy Johncox

In the title story, a mother meets her grown son’s special girlfriend and realizes that the younger woman, despite other good qualities, cannot cook.  If cooking skills are no longer passed down in families, what is lost?  And…what might be gained in compensation for this loss?

In the story, “Sugar Cubes,” a three-generation family of women forms a strong circle of protection against fear by sharing an old-country custom:  dunking sugar cubes in milky coffee.

Very different from one another, the stories in this collection are sure-handed and delicious.
