|Great Grandmother Adele Rosia Cooking with her Protege|
Smacznego: A Blog is the first attempt in a plan to expand the horizons of home cooks looking for a new way to approach food: the professional way. Since the start of this blog in March of 2011, many people have questioned why the name Smaczneo. The term Smacznego is loosely translated into Polish as "May This Meal Be Tasty". No, Polish is not my native language; however, my roots are based in the European countryside of Poland & Lithuania. The name is in honor of the traditions of our family legacy; to never let a guest leave hungry. Each holiday that passes by is filled with stories from both sides of the aisle on how the Lithuanians perfected the cuisine of the Poles. Laughter is always the center of conversation, but food is what brings both sides to the table asking for more!
Smacznego: A Blog rests in the loving memory of my Lithuanian great grandmother, Adele Rosia, who started a restaurant that became the hot spot for dinning in a small lake village in Holland, Massachusetts. As time continued, it became tradition after our supper prayer for the family to burst out in one accord, SMACZNEGO! Though the privilege of this family tradition came before my time, I respect the roots of my culinary heritage.
