Food Writing—Hereditary?

My daughter, Emma, has been attending the Saturday Enrichment Program at the University of Va. (We tease that our 8-year-old is going to college, but it’s been a great experience.) This year, she was selected for “Exploring the World of Writing.” We just received her evaluation, which consists of some pretty detailed observations about Emma.
I had to share this. (Remember, I have just written a cookbook and am working on another cookbook proposal, and these folks have no idea about any of that.)
“Some of Emma’s favorite activities included writing to music, observing and writing about fruits and vegetables…During our discussion of the fruit and vegetable observation, Emma made the imaginative comment that her vegetable “smelled like watercolors.”
That’s my kid.
