Janet Fitch on her mother's domain — the kitchen
It's become a tradition at the L.A. Times Food section: Every year, we run a holiday essay by a noted Southern California writer reflecting the unique nature of the way we celebrate the season. This year's is by Janet Fitch, whose novels include the best-selling "White Oleander" and "Paint It Black."
