Culinary Inspiration at The Boulevard

Category: Culinary

Author: Jacqueline Hesser, Culinary Director

For numerous chefs, there exists a pivotal cookbook that served as the catalyst for their culinary journey. This single book ignited an idea, unlocking a passion for cooking they may not have realized they possessed. Cookbooks transcend mere collections of recipes; they serve as windows into cultures, histories, and personal narratives. With each page turn, a new adventure, tradition, or innovative technique unfolds.

Every recipe and cookbook, whether passed down through generations or reimagined, enriches our culinary culture at The Boulevard Senior Living – Wentzville. Exploring culinary resources nurtures and evolves our love for food and cooking.

I have a current cookbook collection of about 20 or so books, although I hardly ever use them. My favorite among them is the St. Marks Cookbook, originating from the Parish my grandparents attended. What I like most about it is its passage from my grandparents to my parents and then to me, evoking memories of my childhood.

To capture my interest, a cookbook must feature lots of pictures, as we eat with our eyes first.

My family holds all the recipes from my spouse’s mother’s family, which are very special to us. Additionally, one of my cherished creations is pumpkin cheesecake.
