Almost three weeks ago my friend, fellow food writer and mother Jennifer Perillo, lost her husband quite suddenly. Just a week before his death, she and I sat on a sunny lawn with Dixie cups of lemonade, and she told me about how deep and long her love for Mikey runs.
The loss of Mikey is a grand devastation. Most of us can only imagine.
A bunch of folks in the food community are gathering hands, minds and hearts to help Jennie. This post is about how you can help us help her.
You see, one thing I knew long before we ever met in person was how much Jennie loved sharing food with her husband. She tweeted at length about the meals they made as a family, her excusions to the market for ingredients, and their hand-in-hand date nights out.
