See my blog Growing up in the Bronx, New York, in the 1950s was a unique experience. My parents were originally from Poland, moved to Paris, France after the war where they lived for several years before immigrating to the United States. I was a first generation American, surrounded by immigrant families. Our neighborhood was filled with other Eastern European Jews as well as Sicilians. My Mom was a very good cook and the dinners she prepared were always fresh and seasonal, with a European influence. I was fortunate to have other inspirations as well: my French cousin, Micheline, who made dishes with exotic and beautiful names such as Isle Flotante and Cr�me Caramel and my Aunt Marisha who made her own liqueurs every summer with the blueberries and raspberries that we picked near her home in New Jersey. I also shared meals at the nearby home of the Bartolini family where heavy red pasta sauces cooked for hours. Food was always the centerpiece of gatherings for family and friends. It was an expression of love, warmth and hospitality. With this blog I hope to share some of my memories and recipes with you.
