My grandmother, who I lovingly called Mimi, was a passionate cook! All of her meals were made from scratch, and boy was she one heck of a cook! I wanted to use one of her classic recipes as inspiration for my illustration, and to share her wonderful recipe with everyone!
Frankly, I've never heard of the rainbow diet, but instinctively I like to cook with just these ingredients. I also love colorful pictures. So what could be better for me to come up with a recipe for "the eat the rainbow challenge", to cook it and of course to illustrate it.
This Auld Reekie Recipe (Scots name for Cock-a-Leekie) pays homage to my dear dad, as it was his favourite soup, and to my Scottish ancestors. In Scotland this soup is traditionally served on Burns Night and in the ‘olden days’ an old cock rooster would have been used, but today chicken is more readily available. ‘Auld Reekie’ is also the nick name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and goes back to the days of the coal and wood fires that used to create a plume of reek (Scots word for smoke) over the old city and castle.
