My mother was inspired to write about her childhood by reading a biographical sketch of her great-grandfather. Thanks to her memoir, I know a little something about family members who died before I was born, and how different growing up in her time and place was from my experience. I hope to do the same for my descendants, but with my own twist- it seems to me I should include some recipes. So this is the story of my childhood and adolescence, with an emphasis on cooking and eating since I believe our food legacy is especially worth preserving.
