The book is filled with a hearty helping of old family recipes, as well as memories that celebrate a time, a place and a group of people who knew that to eat together was to live well. Join Maria and several members of her exuberant family for a reading and discussion. Maria Schulz is an author, copywriter, and blogger who lives in Old Bethpage.
