Cathy West sent an e-mail yesterday (justly) bragging about her son. "You won't believe this, but Will, my youngest, loves to cook," she wrote. Actually, I do believe it, because I knew Cathy when she was a professional cook -- one who spent her days at Saleh al Lago making Linguine Buon Gusto and little lemon-custard tarts that still have me mentally salivating 17 years later. Will -- who turned 14 on Saturday -- answered the phone when I called her to chat. When I introduced myself, and asked him how his love for cookery came to be, he explained, without pause: "I've been cooking with my mom my entire life."
