From Paper To People

The Family Cookbook - My Saucy Grandma

September 25, 2019

My mother's mother, Ga, was a quiet, staid woman. She was peaceful, smiling, a model DAR and Midwestern sorority sister. But underneath it all...she was SAUCY. In this episode, I'll give you some of my grandmother's "International" sauce recipes (because sauce was a staple on her dinner table), and the reasons why I think her self-written attempts at international cuisine reveal a bit about who she was and the time and place that produced her.
