We’ve all got great childhood memories about learning to cook with someone. Whether a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or favorite family friend the majority of people cooking today are doing so because someone in their lives inspired them.

Growing up as a blind child meant I spent years alternating between public school and a school for the blind. This gave me a variety of experiences.

  1. This is very inspiring, Patty.

    1. Hi Robbie, thanks for reading and commenting. I’m glad you enjoyed this.
      I never really think about stuff like this being inspiring but I suppose to someone who cannot imagine cooking and other things as a blind person it is.
      Thanks again and have a great day.
