My husband is 100% Italian. As far as I know, I’m 100% Texan. He has a great ethnic heritage; I am more of a mutt.
In my family, we followed recipes – usually cut from local newspapers or found in tried-and-true cookbooks. In his family, recipes were passed down from generation to generation, rarely written down, requiring more of a hands-on apprenticeship.
So when we married, I began training.
