Inspired Cooking

In 2007, First Presbyterian Church in downtown Charlotte published an elegant collection of essays and recipes to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the church. Gaillard contributed a remembrance of U.S. District Judge James B. McMillan, an elder in the church, who, in his official capacity as a federal judge, had ordered the total integration of Charlotte's public schools. The landmark ruling, at least for a time, forced Charlotte to confront its history of segregation, and in the book, entitled Inspired Cooking: Recipes and Reflections from the Heart of Charlotte, Gaillard celebrated McMillan's legacy of courage and faith.
