Fox Valley Cooks: Aurora dad’s interest in cooking came in the mail

It was a random magazine that got Ed Kuhs started cooking. The Aurora resident had ordered some supplies through the mail and was given a free subscription to a cooking magazine.

Each month when the magazine arrived in the mail, Kuhs threw it into a stack until one day, he actually looked through an issue. He liked what he saw and decided to give the recipe a try.

“I didn’t necessarily follow the recipe as much as I followed the ideas for the recipes,” he explained. One of his first attempts was chili. “It was pictured on the cover of the magazine and looked pretty good. I used ground sirloin and Italian sausage in it and instead of beer, I used red wine. It turned out pretty good.” After the success of the chili venture, Kuhs started sharing cooking duties with his wife, Sheryl.

The couple has two sons and one daughter so there are plenty of people to gather around the table for meals. The 43-year-old dad is the multi-media writer, producer and director for College of DuPage so he is usually too busy to cook on the week days. However, on the weekends, Kuhs steps into the kitchen to whip up one of his dishes. “We try to make it special and serve the meal on nice plates and enjoy eating together,” he explained.
