Today our guests are Priscilla Martel and Kaylee Sanabria. Priscilla is a flavor maven, chef, and food consultant living in Connecticut. She is also a successful cookbook author and recipe developer. Kaylee was a Binghamton University student and is now working in the corporate fashion industry in New York.
Priscilla and Kaylee talk about how the different objects that get passed on form intergenerational bonds among women. They share the role that their grandmothers and mothers play in their lives, and also discuss the pitfalls of mythologizing the grandmother figure in immigrant history.
