Actress Linda Evans dishes from her new memoir, Recipes for Life.
Food has never let me down. In the early ’80s, we shot a scene for Dynasty where Joan [Collins] and I had to fight in a lily pond. During lunch, I was bundled up and shivering like a drowned rat, so I asked my assistant to get me something to eat. She came back with this warm plate of corn pudding. I was in heaven!
I ate two more helpings and finally asked our caterers for the recipe. This dish is so wonderful and gooey, with the corn, the cheese, and the chiles. Your mouth is in so many different worlds at once.
You collect the things you like, so I have about nine corn pudding recipes, but when I tried this one, wow, I knew it was a winner. I started cooking in my 20s, and for me it is just pure joy. I’m 69 and still cooking!
