Cooking for Your Cub

There is a certain philosophy undertaken when a sophisticated woman decides to adopt the moniker Cougar. She embraces her age with class and style, secure in the knowledge of all she can offer.

Women have an inherent and natural instinct when it comes to taking care of their man, but the benefits of being an older woman whether it s a few years or fifteen is that experience, matched with grace and topped off with an aged beauty completes the spectacular package.

When Claudia approached me with her desire to cook for her cub, I put together a series of specialty dishes for a variety of occasions, designed to nourish not only the body but also her relationship with her special man.

I hope you enjoy preparing these dishes as much as I enjoyed creating them. And trust me; if Claudia can make these, you can too. – Mary Jo Eustace

As a single, career focused woman, I never had time to learn to cook for myself let alone my younger man. When our relationship took a major step forward, I wanted to spoil my cub in a way I knew he would appreciate . . . the universal gateway to a man s love – his stomach.

Being the perfectionist that I am, I sought out Mary Jo Eustace, who is an incredible chef, author, TV host and all around amazing woman.

Mary Jo s specialty dishes brought the experience of fine dining into the most intimate place I know . . . my home. I’ll be the first to admit that I m no Julia Child in the kitchen, but with Mary Jo s recipes, I didn t have to be. And as cornty as it sounds, I truly feel cooking for my cub has made our relationship stronger.

We created Cooking for Your Cub for the women out there who like me are lions in the boardroom, tigers in the bedroom, but pussycats in the kitchen. Women who aren t cooking because they have to, but because they want to. After all, life is all about experiences, and with Cooking for Your Cub, you get to experience life in a whole new way with your man. -Claudia Opdenkelder, CEO,
