Experience in the area

My grandmother collected recipes all her life. This collection evolved into a huge battered cookbook that was passed down to mother who, though less domestic than grandmother, continued the tradition. Since my family background is mixture of Russian, German, Hungarian, Armenian, Jewish and Ukrainian roots, the recipes are vast and varied.
