About Pat: On one hand, Pat is a true sophisticate. A seasoned traveler, she has both lived abroad and traveled extensively. In her travels, she has compiled recipes from every country she visited, buying cookbooks as she went.
But there is another side to Pat, one that shows its face when she is home. Then she works with kids in the the 4-H clubs, though not always just cooking. She tells us, "For the last 11 years I have been key project leader for Heritage Arts which includes projects such as weaving, spinning dyeing, basketry, crochet, stitchery. I am also a judge. It is tough keeping on the right hat, but I manage to stay impartial.
Asked about cooking with kids, she tells us that, "My 4-H kids at nine can make really good nut breads/muffins, jams, and can do cake decorating that will beat any bakery.
