"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
Eddie loves to bake (and to eat of course). As in generations before him, one of Eddie's very first foods was Kringla. Having recently baked some Kringla with Grammy, and then later having heard about this collection of favorite family recipes, 3-year-old Eddie volunteered immediately, with a big smile on his face, that his favorite recipe is definitely Kringla. Grammy has been famous for her Kringla baking for years. The children love making it with her, and -- while some butter their Kringla on the top, some butter it on the bottom, and some do not butter it at all -- everybody loves eating it. Grammy often wonders who will carry on the Kringla baking tradition -- I think it just might be Eddie.
