Foods that memorialize those no longer with us

Mandymac | Oct 19, 2007 12:55 PM

I had a sort of "honorary grandfather" who taught me how to make bread by hand, as well as some classic Italian specialties in his repertoire. He passed away several years ago, but even today when I make bread, it seems to conjure vivid memories.

My mom likes to go our for a classic martini when she visits me in New York, in memory of my father's favorite Friday night drink.

Do people have special foods and special preparations that they eat/make in honor of the deceased?
