My Italian Grandmother was a great cook, she was most comfortable at home in her kitchen. At the time, being as young as I was I wasn't able to realize it. I watched as she made all kinds of delicious foods from scratch
Now that we’ve all made it through the holidays unscathed, I would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! That being said, it’s time for you to open up your pantry along with that fancy cookbook you got for Christmas and start creating some new traditions for your family.
For me, food is much more than a simple act of consumption. Food is culture, a family timeline and every recipe has its own history. Recipes are handed down through the generations, sometimes many generations, from grandmothers to mothers and their Daughters.
