"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

Personal Notes:
I have never known any other person, except my mother, who could or would flip a corn bread pie like this. She really cooked some wonderful cornbread..! My mother married a Huiet descendant. I don't think he ever saw her flip that cornbread pie, but she let me watch many times. I loved watching her do this.
