We Need to Take Some Time Off
Alas, not an April Fools’ joke
We’re sad to report that Father of Kitchen Riffs passed away recently. The “oldster,” as we affectionately called him, was 99 and lived a good life. His doctor advised us several weeks ago that the end was coming, but it’s still a shock when it does.
So we’re taking two or three weeks off.
Oh, and the picture that tops this post? It’s the Black Velvet Cocktail, which reportedly was invented to commemorate the passing of Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria.
It’s an appropriate drink for us this week. We lift our glasses to The Oldster.
