My family are Italian and we are big on sharing food. If I drop into my parents' house, you can almost bet I'm coming home with something food related. Whether Mum has picked me up a big wedge of parmesan cheese from the European deli, or Dad has caught some fish that he has fried up and it's waiting in the fridge. Dad is Vice President of his Italian Club and when they have events, he will often come home with a big bag of Italian Crostoli (a fried pastry dusted with icing sugar). These are so time consuming to make and need more than one pair of hands, so we don't get to cook them very much. I really look forward to receiving them, they connect me to my heritage. What a delicious gift.
A big wedge of Parmesan cheese- yum!
