Behind the success of Mom’s Gourmet was creative food aficionado Patsy Flattery. Patsy, a.k.a. “Mom,” had what every great gourmet cook has … culinary inventiveness mixed with a dash of “I can do it better.” While raising her four children on a modest budget, Mom was always cooking and creating wonderful new dishes. Her kids never worried about what they were having for dinner. They always knew whatever it was, it would taste great!
