Though this is a cookbook/memoir about MY family it could be the story of any immigrant family. There are memories of old family customs and traditions and of people long gone but whose lives add color and dimension to who we are now.
I'd love to see more families create cookbook/memoirs to celebrate their own heritage. I think it is a beautiful thing and it is something to pass on to young family members. I cannot help but think that someday one of my great-nieces or nephews will give a copy to their child on his/her wedding day and say, "My Great-Aunt made this, I remember her. She was a character."
