My mom's side is English and Irish (my only claim to fame is one of her male ancestors came over on the Mayflower -- indentured servant)
My dad's side is French, Polish and German...Polish and German because the town they were from was on the border and sometimes belonged to Germany and sometimes to Poland...
My dad always called us Heinz 57 mix...

“Other creatures receive food simply as fodder. But we take the raw materials of the earth and work with them—touch them, manipulate them, taste them, glory in their heady smells and colors, and then, through a bit of alchemy, transform them into delicious creations.”
― Judith Jones, The Tenth Muse: My Life in Food
