chowhound formative influences?

Will Pisarra | Jun 21, 2000 04:24 PM

Are there experiences in your background that you would cite as important in forming your present chowhoundosity? Interested in seeing if there are common denominators.

For myself the quick list is...growing up in New York and living with Italian grandparents and their attitude toward food and eating (Italian meaning from Italy)....being surrounded by folks who were always looking forward to dinner....being taught to be open to new foods (ok to not like something, but you should try it before you don't like it)...early and continued exposure to authentic food from various cuisines....lots of restaurant exposure across the spectrum of cuisine and price.

How about you?
