"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Judy is the wife of Jack Hollenshead, Jr., the Editor of this cookbook. She is the daughter-in-law of the late Jack & Dorothy (Bellew) Hollenshead. This is a beautiful dessert and wonderfully delicious! This is a recipe that my mother, Frances Green, made many times while I was a child.
