From My Mama's Kitchen, by Johnny Tan

From My Mama's Kitchen by Johnny Tan
When you think of a Mother, what do you think of?  If you ARE a mother, what words would you hope your children would use to describe you?
Loving, helpful, faithful, sincere, encouraging, sweet, self-sacrificing, trufhful, God-fearing, bold, insightful, descretionary, one-of-a-kind, true, protective, open, trusting, unfailing, caring, comforting, honest... the list could go on forever!

Johnny has had a unique experience from being adopted, and then "adopting" even more moms (for a total of NINE MOMS!!) in his journey of life!

You will find a little bit of everything in "From My Mama's Kitchen."  It is a book of encouragement for mothers, a book of love and remembrance for children, and soul food for every one else!

This is a little bit about the author, Johnny Tan:

Like a pot of the famous Louisiana gumbo, Johnny Tan’s life has been richly flavored over the years by his nine moms.

In April of 2007, Johnny began recording the various heart-felt memories and words of wisdom expressed and felt in the kitchen setting. The result is From My Mama’s Kitchen – “food for the soul, recipes for living.”

Adopted at birth in Malaysia, Johnny Tan came to the United States in 1980 to attend college at LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Here, he began a journey that led him into crossing paths with various women he admiringly referred to as Mom. It is the inspiration, support and life skills that Johnny received from his moms that have guided him towards his pursuit for personal excellence.

After college, Johnny worked in the restaurant industry for 18 years. He retired from a successful career as Chief Operating Officer in 2001, to begin a new vocation of running his own business.

Living by his very own personal vision and mission statement, Johnny continually uses his gift of creativity to enrich the lives of those who know him and for his community through his fellowship and leadership ability.

Johnny is also an accomplished amateur ballroom dancer. He has performed with his dance partners for more than 10 years at various ballroom and charity events in Louisiana and Texas.

He currently resides in Dallas, Texas.

I hope you enjoy Johnny Tan's work as much as I have!
