By Christine Birmingham-Reyes Meet Pauline Parry, the Founder and President of Good Gracious! Events, an award-winning food and beverage company. She is also the author of My Culinary Love Story, a memoir and collection of recipes from her journey. The book is a testament to how food, fun, and love enhance life. Pauline explains more as we kick off the conversation by discussing the inspiration behind the book. Congratulations on your latest book, My Culinary Love Story! What inspired you to write it? My inspirations were my grandchildren, George and Miles. My father was Polish, and my mother was English.
