THIS RECIPE BECAME AN INSTANT FAMILY FAVORITE IN 1962, WHEN MISS GINA, OUR LAND LADY IN OAKLAND CALIFORNIA, INVITED US TO SUNDAY DINNER AND SERVED THIS GEM. HER TINY HOUSE WAS LIKE A SERIES OF JEWEL BOX ROOMS; PRISTINE VICTORIAN AND ALWAYS HAD THE AROMA OF LEMON VERBENA. HER STORIES OF WHEN SHE SANG AT THE METROPOLITAN OPERA AND CHATTED WITH CARUSO IN A CHURCH IN ITALY, HER CELEBRITY LOVERS AND "WHY SHE STAYED IN CALIFORNIA" WERE A PART OF THE DINNER - BUT NOT A PART OF THE RECIPE. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS WE DO AND MAKE YOUR OWN MEMORIES AND TELL YOUR OWN STORIES.
