Senior Center Shares Family Treasures

Passover honey cake, baked ziti, kielbasa and sauerkraut—these are foods that grandmas cook best. For those who didn't inherit the family recipes, or who had a grandmother who cooked from tradition not recipes, the members of the Norwalk Senior Center will share theirs.

"What's Cookin' Norwalk" is a collection of members' favorite recipes. Profits from the sale of the cookbook support the center's activities, said Member Services Director Joan Theroux.. When compiling the book, many contributors shared anecdotes along with the recipes (such as Camille Andreozzi's salad that her mother traditionally served on Christmas Eve) or named their contributions after a relative or dear friend (such as Millie Lalime's "Grammy O'Neill's Yummy Scones.)

"It became a way to honor a family tradition," said Theroux. "Every recipe I've tried has been really good."

The Norwalk Senior Center, one of only three independent, nonprofit senior centers in Connecticut, is a place where friends gather to play bocce and pinochle. It provides transportation to shopping or doctor's appointments and it holds classes in yoga, computers and foreign languages, to name but a few. To purchase a copy of the cookbook–and support the center's mission—call the center at 847-3115.
