Thirteen years ago, right around Father’s Day, Lansing native Maureen Abood’s father, prominent local attorney Camille Abood, passed away from cancer.  

 
Maureen, who pens a popular blog about Lebanese food and culture called Rose Water & Orange Blossoms, was gracious enough to share her memories of her father and explain how the healing power of food helped her and her family cope with their loss. 

 
A longer version of this essay appeared in the Washington Post in 2004.   You can find more of Maureen’s writing and recipes on her blog and, in the future, also right here on Current State, as our new occasional food contributor.
