Dinner with Doris

Peabody grandmother cooks on national TV


“I served him roast pork marinated with wine and garlic and herbs. He never left the damned table until it was finished,” she says.

One of six grandchildren, Kasey Brown, is an aspiring actress. She got Doris her TV break after seeing a notice online for cooks to appear on “My Grandmother’s Ravioli,” a program dedicated to the traditional foods created by grandmothers.

Just as Beethoven went deaf, medications have curbed this food maestro’s appetite. Yet, Brown continues to cook and can still appreciate the results.

“I can eat it once,” she says. Love of good food, she believes, is a key to the love of life.
