Joanne Kinsey, director of school nutrition services, Chesapeake (Va.) Public Schools, says: As a young child I would spend vacations with my grandparents, who were Czechoslovakian. My grandfather spoke very little English, so I spent most of my time with my grandmother. She loved to cook authentic Czechoslovakian food and served it at all of our family gatherings. My love for cooking was a result of her teaching. This is one recipe my mother continued to make for our family. It always brings back fond memories of growing up in an intergenerational household.
