The food we are exposed to during childhood can have a profound effect on our cooking (and eating) choices when we become adults.

As the daughter of esteemed cookbook editor Maria Guarnaschelli and my dad, John, an Italian and Chinese cooking enthusiast, I spent my childhood surrounded by food. I honestly feel as if learned to eat according to whatever cookbook my mother was working on at the time: one was year devoted to Indian as she cooked her way through the manuscript of Classic Indian Cooking by Julie Sahni; another year was devoted to Italian with The Splendid Table by Lynne Rossetto Kasper. That year was intense. My father claimed that if he saw another sprinkle of Balsamic vinegar in the kitchen, he might consider moving out!
