Same here! When we gather as family, our passed down traditional recipes are made by those who were taught by those before them. It's a heart-warming feeling as if we are children again and eating the foods grandma made for everyone. Pass the lasagna and the tortelloni please!

Sure, that's a start, he can make fire.

Personally, I prefer wood or charcoal (or a combination) too...but, sometimes, gas is just a bit more convenient...and so far, for me, more consistent, though I *am* getting better at managing the heat level and timing with coals/wood, I might even be as skilled as a Neandertaler...

Yes, it is a start but at 82 do you think he will get past the "start" stage?

I usually do green chicken curry. Easy to make in volume, stores well, reheats well, and once prepared usually stays warm long enough time that no heat maintenance required when being served. Just make either a pot of rice or roti to go with it and you're good.

Only negative is must cater to spice level to lowest common denominator in the group, but can put small bowl of prik nam pla next to it for colonic distress customization.
