I went out to lunch with a dear friend the other day. We grew up together and shared a love of good food. Our mothers are both great cooks and we got talking about dishes they made back in the day. One was a sort of chicken cacciatore, sans any tomatoes, but loaded with vegetables and flavored with ---of all things---red wine vinegar. The smell alone brought me back nearly 35 years, back in my parent's home. What delicious memories. What dishes remind you of your childhood?
