At a very young age my parents would leave me at my grandmothers on Friday nights so that they could go out to dinner. I coveted those evenings spent with her learning the lore of the Italian Kitchen. If was the start of a lifetime's fascination with food. I grew up making cookies for the baseball team, entertained college friends with exotic dishes whipped up on a hot plate, and managed to create feasts for my united nations of friends in the world's tiniest kitchen while in Graduate School. When other people travel they visit museums, I flock to grocery stores.
