We heard about, tasted, and savored the goodies of three European countries.

Felisa Brea McKay, long time member of Friends of Perry Public Library, teaches Spanish at SUNY Geneseo. Born and raised in Galicia, Spain, she introduced us to her way of cooking.

Rose Andolina was born to and raised in an Italian family in Perry and has been cooking Italian delicacies for years. She is well known in the community for her culinary skills.

Janet Bonarski, a Perry resident from a Polish family in Buffalo, has carried on her mother's tradition of cooking Polish food. She recently did a program on Polish culture and enjoys polka dancing.
