Another Top Chef first! Are you happy with the outcome? And the previews - fire trucks?!
My family is German/English and we ate North American 60s cuisine. I remember Kraft Mac and Cheese with peas and tuna fish. Scrambled eggs with crumbled bacon.
When I married The Engineer (Swedish) I inherited the ebelskiver pan and my MIL's hand written recipe and this has become a family tradition served the morning after Thanksgiving - made by The Engineer. Each nephew-in-law gets a pan and recipe upon marriage. So a tradition with a twist.
(Yes, those are some of the ancestors above.)
