"Food is also one of the most easily preserved aspects of cultural heritage through the generations. I think of all my Italian-American friends who speak Spanish better than Italian, thanks to high school language classes, but who still know how to make a terrific tomato sauce. Many of my Jewish friends can make matzo ball soup yet cannot recite the Hebrew alphabet. I have no idea whether my grandchildren will speak Chinese, but I feel certain they will know how to make fried dumplings." ~Jennifer 8. Lee, The Fortune Cookie Chronicles
