“Good food is a key ingredient to great living” ~ Rebecca Klemke
On the last page of Where Magazine Calgary September October 2013 issue there is an interview-style article featuring food writer Rebecca Klemke’s Decades Of Decadence. It describes what kind of cookbook Decades Of Decadence is, what the title refers to, the type of cooking it encompasses, the cooking philosophy behind the scene, how the plethora of recipes were compiled and modified, and who should use the cookbook.
“Author and food blogger Rebecca Klemke is a member of one of the city’s first family of food… Decades Of Decadence is Klemke’s first cookbook and not only catalogues her family recipes, but the clan’s cuisine-centric passion for life”.
“To my Grandmother, Lois O’Connor. I adore you. Chin-chin” ~ Decades Of Decadence dedication page
Lois O’Connor passed away peacefully surrounded by family September 13, 2013 on a beautiful day in Calgary. Please raise a glass in memory of this fabulous woman. A toast to an amazing life lived and a remarkable legacy left behind. She was the inspiration for the creation of Decades Of Decadence. Regardless of whether you had the pleasure to meet my vibrant grandma or not, everyone has reason to sing her praise. Her love of life and especially food was and always will be a driving force behind what RK Kitchen is all about. Please join in celebrating a life that has brought so much to so many.
Truly a Grandma to us all.
