Someone's Mama Made This
December 15, 2008 9:38 PM   Subscribe

In Mamas Kitchen was born in the experience of living in New York where a bodega exists within blocks of a Jewish deli which is around the corner from an Italian salumeria which shares space with Chinatown which abuts Soho's gourmet stores. While this speaks of the legendary variety available in New York, it also tells of similarity, for in every bodega, every salumeria is someone shopping for the food that sustains physical life with a recipe that nourishes our hearts.

[removed a few comments and complaints about comments - can we have a do-over? this is a recipes site. you can go hate New York in MetaTalk if you must.]

It's a nice site, neat recipes. I could do with more love for mama and a little less New York in the about page (and thus the FPP) though, especially since it doesn't seem to factor at all in any other page and seems rather out of place in a site that isn't actually about New York. That aside, neat-o.

I want to apologize for my (deleted) comment. I'm actually a NYC resident and am bursting with civic pride... I suppose my comment was more just intended as a pre-emptive snark, because I know how it goes whenever someone makes a post about how fucking awesome New York is. (Also, in my defense, my narcissistic comment was entirely accurate.)

I actually find the main link to be quite solid and absolutely no offense was meant, so I hope not too much was taken. Sorry netbros!

This is great. I love the cultural histories and family stories that go along with the recipes. Thanks!
